    Excellent breakfast buffet, to be enjoyed with a great view on the Indian Ocean. The same place is a bar and restaurant during the day. The food is nice and the staff very friendly.

    The breakfast was excellent. The room was beautiful with ocean view balcony. Central location of the place made us visit all areas of the island
