Good if you want to party
Ants all over the kitchen and the rooms weren't the cleanest however the price was cheap and the location fantastic. Staff were friendly but they need to pay more attention to the group that they take away to things like the sunset walks. One girl was slow at the back so I waited for her and they just left us. It was pitch black and I was just lucky that I had a torch. Unfortunately we couldn't find the path we had walked down and had to stop a car to get directions via the road. We got there eventually but they really did have no idez how many people they left with.

On the beach
Location, hammock, and beachside terrace
Location is fantastic, on the beach, whereas facilities are poor. Shower pressure is very weak. You can enjoy beachside all day!

Fine rum, og god kontrolleret fest om aftenen.
Mulighed for at opgradere rum, mulighed for aftensmad og morgenmad, god fest om aftenen.
Et dejligt sted, kan varmt anbefales. Ønsker man lidt fest er der mulighed for det, men samtidig også mulighed for ro, hvis man er træt.
