After our holiday on the Yacht Gecko (where we've got engaged!) we stayed for 2 nights at Marcine's place
What can I say- it was perfect! If you like crowds and buffet food it's not place for you, you are treated as a personal guest here, with delicious food, served just for you, with evening drinks and talks, with amazing view..
Totally agree with HatSW- we too will be back, hopefully very soon!
Thanks to Marcine and her staff for our wonderful stay!
