    The staff here are great, they are friendly and make you feel like family. Food options at the lodge are good value and the accommodation is nice. Conveniently located just above the main road and within walking distance of the beach. Good cooking facilities too.

    Good food, friendly staff, clean rooms, nice athmosphere in the "living room" with games and drinks. A nice south african lady offers south african dinner, it was very tasty. I would come again to this friendly place
