Had ocean facing room and was a great place to stay. Upper end so not cheap but room was great, restaurant very good and bar area inside or outside very nice. Not a great place as a walking base but getting around by car is how one would do so anyways. Easy access to downtown and to airport.

We had a fabulous time at the southern sun.. No request was too much or too small. Fabulous service, friendly staff, good food. Excellent arrangements. The rooms were comfortable, big enough for sharing and well equipped. It was a very pleasant stay and definitely a place I would go back to.

John Rutherford you just brought hospitality to a next level! Owning a 4 star guest house ourselves just encouraged me to book our December holiday's with your establishment! The passion you and your team showed from checkin, the cleanliness of the rooms, the SUPERB buffet breakfast, gigantic Prawns and most of all your constant check-in and personal curiosity 'Are you still enjoying yourselves'! This was my best experience abroad in 17 years of travelling! I truly hope you guys are reaping the rewards from your efforts! It’s fantastic to see how committed you all are! I will never forget the spectacular view over the swimming pool and the beach... less than 6 meters away and WOW the gorgeous sunset at night! Be blessed and see you in December!
