From the airport collection we knew this was going to be good. Professional service and advise all the way through with a HUGE garden room near the pool suitable for us and our two young kids (2 and 5). Staff were curtious and very helpful throughout with nothing seeming any effort. A great small hotel feel but with luxury service...

The quiet and peaceful setting of the hotel makes it the perfect place to relax. The grounds are well manicured. There is a pool in the center area and a separate building for massages. Our room was on the ground floor and was spacious and very clean. We had a place to sit just outside our door. We ate breakfast...

This property is a gem. The grounds are wonderfully landscaped, the five well appointed units are spacious and comfortable, the owners and staff are very friendly and helpful, and the food is outstanding. Guests can relax around the unique swimming pool, or walk 15 minutes to an expansive sandy beach. There is also a separate building for massage, located in...

We had a very enjoyable 3 nights at this very comfortable and pretty place.
