This resort is managed with a fantastic idea on what perfect hotel is. Everything is well kept, you can see the care and effort not only from the manager, but entire hotel personel. And that's amazing, you'll love it. Rooms are well kept, beach is clean, you'll feel relaxed, secured and pampered.

Meals are varied and generous with fresh fruits and vegetables sourced locally, a large choice of pasta, meat, fish and other seafood. The Bar is well stocked with beers, a wide selection of South African wines, cold drinks and cocktail ingredients. It serves cocktails throughout the day, in the evening offers a relaxed atmosphere for before and after dinner drinks.
