Staff & service




Property conditions & facilities


8/10 Very good

A beautiful location with a homely feel. Well equipped unit for four, great linen, lovely balcony. We paid more to have a sea facing room but considering how expensive the room was per night (and a lot more than last time we stayed) it’s disappointing that one room at least did not have an en-suite. Towels not changed daily (due to “saving water”), extra cleaning charge of $30 pp for the “two extra guests” even though we booked for four people - surely the room rate should be for four people if it is set up to sleep four? I guess the price increase is due to Covid (?) but it was a lot and with the exclusions mentioned above, quite disappointing.
