The super nice beach bar and the friendly staff. The location is also very nice.
The wifi access, which is more expensive than in other places for the same amount of data.
Breakfast was great and it was a nice way to meet other guests. I liked the friendliness the staff.All very nice and it was quiet with a great lagoon view.
Everything was as expected and hoped for.
Such a great spot and would definitely go back again. Really clean and comfortable, nice staff, beautiful beach... What more could you want! The little bar is fun and we played connect four with the waitress and Mama as they were closing. Dexter the dog adds to the zen vibe and really just the perfect spot for relaxing.
Noisey roosters and quite a bit of glass on the beach, but neither of the things are within anyone's control. Roosters are common on the island and the glass washes up on the beach.
Quiet and private - away from the busier parts of the Island but near some good cafes and food places. Thats if you want to explore as the onsite facilities and location are great - you don't actually need to leave this place if you want a relaxing break. A few less roosters would help but this is a problem on the island in general.
Roosters need culling as they squawk anytime of the day or night. Nothing to add for the place though as was just what we were after.
Lagoon front location, spacious room, covered deck, very comfortable. Great breakfast with fresh pawpaw etc.
The bar was very noisy till about 12pm. Bed was a bit hard!
