Unhappy aboput the room
The room was disappointing. It was too small and no blankets as it is winter. There was no heater eaither. No mirror in the room so the room disappointing in my view.

Hole in the wall resort
The place is quiet nice, close to the beach. Alot of facilities on-site and great for families. The only downside is the road leading to the property, the 25km drive is bumpy I wish the EC municipality can fix it to drive more tourism
