A fantastic location for those wanting a quiet, private, relaxing hotel! The staff are fantastic, the rooms are well catered (comfy bed) and the view is amazing, literally beach front! Ample car parking onsite was helpful, along with the free to use snorkel gear and kayaks.

This is a quiet place - no restaurants etc. but right on the beach. Could lie in bed and watch the ocean. Friendly hosts, and handy to Muri - walk is about half an hour. Beach is very nice at this part of the island.
