          Very modern, quick & friendly welcoming by the owners, delicious breakfast with friendly staff, great view from the balcony; it's almost like an airBnB where you feel like you are living in a home, but a very luxurious one; would stay there again

          Good view from the balcony, can see the lagoons and everything is so peaceful. Great to have breakfast on the balcony. The room size is fairly enough, decorated with white. Overall is very clean, neat and nice.

          Do you have any king size beds 1800mm wide x 2000mm long in a Lagoon view room with a large shower? If we book direct are there any concessions on the Internet prices? We need one room for three nights, 23,24,25th January 2018. Kind regards Andrew & Lynda
