We stayed here in August for 6 nights. Although the hotel is away from the hustle and bustle of all nightlife I must admit it was a refreshing change to have a relaxing break.

Everything was absolutely perfect, from the pick up at the airport to departure. Day trip for snorkelling with picnic was fantastic. Staff at spa were amazing. Would definitely return! Location was quiet but town was easily accessible.
