The property is a small guesthouse with 3 rooms in a good area and close to the beach and some of the luxury hotels and is well priced. What was disappointing was the lack of engagement /interaction of staff. On arrival we were given a set of keys and essentially that was it . The owner is Sydney who I think appeared at brunch the following day but as she did not introduce herself to us not check how we were during our stay we weren't entirely sure. We were the only guests. In the evenings there is no one at the property and this was a little concerning particularly as there are multiple keys for access and barbed wire around the perimeters. On a positive note there is a lovely brunch served on weekends and taco nights that locals attend. The courtyard is lovely for relaxing.

Syd’s Guesthouse is a charming, hidden oasis near the city and only a 10 minute walk from the beach.

Beaucoup de charme et de calme.
Cet établissement a beaucoup de charme, bien décoré, avec goût, chambre et patio Sydney et son équipe sont particulièrement agréables. Calme et dans un quartier sûr près d'une jolie plage. Salle de bain commune, propre. Petit déjeuner très bon. A recommander !

Lieux convivial, Sydney pense à tout pense à tout pour nous faciliter l'arrivé et le départ ! Les petits déjeuner sont excellent, tout comme les tacos que l'on peut manger le soir, ou différentes saveurs de mélanges subtilement ! Vraiment au top ! Tout le personnel est au petits soins pour que le séjour se passe bien !

Nette en schone kamer, lieve en goed Engels sprekende gastvrouw die je goed kan helpen met je weg vinden op het eiland, locatie op loopafstand van veel restaurants en het strand, de beste koffie die ik ooit heb geproefd (en dat zegt wat) en elke dag een heerlijk vers ontbijt.
