Amazing place
Although a bit run down it was impossible to fall in love with the location. Because we were on our honeymoon l had book the luxury lodge unfortunately we were one day late due to border problems then when we did arrive we were told our lodge had been booked out to others. however, the staff were lovely and after offering us numerous bottles of wine as compensation for the oversight.

Beautiful cliffside lodge right by the beach
We only planned to stay 2 nights here over Christmas, but the setting, staff and owners were all so nice that we had to extend by two more. Dixon, Gilbert and Kingston are all fantastic characters that really make you feel welcome and add that family vibe. Thanks also to Paul and Collette for making us feel that much more at home. We'll be back for sure.

4/10 Fair

not impressed.
1. booked and paid on website for most expensive rooms. rooms not as advertised. 2. wifi not working. 3. no cold drinks, little ice, could not make a plan to get more ice. 4. credit card machine badly operated by pulling out card while still in operation and immediately pushed it back. sms on my phone as paid, but machine printed declined. had to pay again, and therfore another sms. paid twice? will see if they will refund me?

Beautiful place, awesome location,
Would like to keep it a secret, but that wouldn't be fair, a long way north of the airport, but well worth the effort. Highly recommend
