The views are great, the service is amazing and the drinks were flowing. I couldn't have asked for a better place to have my beach wedding. Anybody who feels like they need to get their batteries recharged, get away from the bustle and stress of normal life, needs to come here to replenish themselves.

A wonderful stay. small issues were fixed immediately. Everything was clean. Quiet and peaceful. Relaxing. Only thing missing is a line for wet towels or a clothes horse. would definitely want to return and also recommend it to others.

Apartments were great value for money. High quality and very clean, although wish they were a little better sound proofed. Food at the restaurant was very nice. Freindly staff service. Would stay again if visiting the area.

I was happy to stay at this venue, everything worked to my expectation, and in fact exceeded my expectations. I would recommend this venue to anyone anytime I get an opportunity to. I am so happy to have visited this venue, and I'll again choose this venue for a teambuilding event.

Perfect little getaway and the self-catering option has just what you need. The property is very well kept. The beach and pools are easily accessible and in close proximity from anywhere in the resort. Awesome for a family or friends getaway.
