4/5 Good

  • Liked: Staff & service
  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

The property is good value for money - sure there are parts that could do with some updating but I think that is fairly reflected in the price.

Location to local town short bus ride away. Resturant food fresh with local and typical dishes such as pizza, burgers, pasta. Reasonable price and decent servings and very tasty especially the local dishes.Happy hour cocktails best on the whole island. At $10 a cocktail. Sea view amazing, although not really a beach at all. Pool not the best was out of service for three days while there. But surrounding fardens very lush and well cared for. Rooms are basic but clean a little run down A quite resort and not too busy. Staff very helpful and friendly. No activites organised although board games and some snorkling gear avalible to borrow at no charge. Wi fi very expensive so buy a local SIM card in town. Over all good value for money.
