Great break in great location

Highly Recommend By The Sea
The team were welcoming and friendly from the moment we booked. Whatever we needed, they had it ready to go in reception (to name a few coffee machines, beach chairs, bikes, coolers, ice machine, water chiller, gym weights and yoga mats) to ensure we enjoyed the beach (300m walk if that) and exploring the rainforest. The facilities were excellent for the money and we would happily stay again. Our top tip: borrow one of the 4 wheel carts, load up the chairs and coolers and roll down to the beach for the day! We would have loved to have stayed longer but sadly onto the next stop in our trip!

10/10 Exceptional

Perfect studio apartment for a small family. The hotel is super cute and comfortable. They have everything you need for your stay from beach wagons to coolers. I can't imagine how long it took them to accumulate all the decor items but the effect is worth it because it reminds you what a beach vacation is for, fun. It's a lovely place and I would stay again and again.
