We had such a wonderful time at Beachcomber. We stayed 10 nights and were truly treated like family. The breakfast was AMAZING. The room was huge and the view breathtaking. We will certainly be going back on our next trip.

The rooms are clean, cool and well appointed! I love the fresh milk in the fridge. Linen is really great, and lovely towels. Wifi is quick and efficient and its a pleasure to stay here. I always wish it was for longer.

Place well clean and good welcoming from staff. We enjoyed our stay. Thanks for the input from the owner advising which areas to visit depending on the needs. We didn't like the dogs but she did great to keep them away from us.

The Beachcomber offers much more than the website promises. Warm reception when we arrived and during our stay. Breakfast and views to die for. Highly recommendable and would stay there again if the opportunity came along.
