This place is just awesome and the location and the beach is just fabulous. Cottages are very tastefully done and very comfortable. Wonderful and a pretty large sized swimming pool compared to some of the other ones which we have experienced. Restaurant is very good though the service can be a bit quicker. Overall - Hospitality at its best!
