I liked that we got our own room between the 3 guests. But the lack of car spaces and the noise that other people occured ess terrible. I jaf a group of backpackers smashing up a car at my back door and the noise was ridiculous. And being there with 2 boys and having our race van sit on the streets as 3 places werr wadted eith unregistered car's smashed car and shipping containers. No organization with vehicle's and very inconsiderate people would just park were even and even block people in. Wont be staying again but will be back again next year fir the race.

It's a laid back resort with so many people from around the world to chill with by the pool or to sit at the outdoor areas & chat & walking distance to the centre of town. 😊
