We stayed for a week in a garden cottage (no a/c). Checked in on Monday afternoon after a full day of car, shuttle buses, planes, taxi's, boat ferry's...it was a journey. Once we arrived at SC, Claire met us and showed us to our home for 7 nights. She was very friendly and explained how things worked, how and when to order food, etc...The cottage was very nice and clean. King sized bed, plenty of fans and lots of books. Good storage for clothes, a safe and mini fridge. Outdoor shower which was fine by us - not creepy at all. Once we were settled we went to the bar for a drink (s) and off to the beach for the sunset. GLORIOUS! The dinners are wonderful at SC - Talapia, duck, Lamb, veal, kung pow chicken...it goes on. The menu rotates every Thursday with 5 new items. Service across the property was excellent! Mic and Shaneek at the bar, Winsome and Claire all over the place and everyone else we encountered treated us great, but let us enjoy our vacation without hovering. This is not a "hotel" with services and staff waiting at your beck and call. If you need or want anything - they are on it and with a smile. The setting is incredible, as others have said. I just wanted to put in my review that we had hoped in would be a great vacation for our 21st anniversary and the whole team at SC exceeded in every way.
