The manager Mike ensures you have a comfortable stay be greeting you at reception with a big smile. After the usual formalities you are shown around the premise and given a quick rundown on whats available close by which includes shopping, restaurants, clubs and water activities. The free Wifi is fast and effective the rooms are comfortable and clean.
