    My friends and I spent 5 days at Rockside Cabana and I have to say, the location is ideal - directly on a pristine, tranquil beach, with an immaculately pruned garden and pleasant, clean rooms. Breakfast was included - basic, but more than adequate, and...More

    Response from Renate K | Property representative |
    There is a bath possible in front of our ROCKSIDE CABANAS HOTEL because this area is protected from a reef. At othe beaches can be dangerous because the sea can be rough.
