Close to some essential features

For those who prefer the beach to the on-site pool, they are more than happy with the short drive to Orient Beach.

A quiet and secure location

The area is thought by guests to be very quiet so sleep comes easily, particularly in the remarkably comfortable beds. Relaxation, guests say, comes more easily in a safe environment; and rooms here are certainly secure.

Negative Reviews

A dirty pool

Rooms are missing some basic features

According to reviews, the kitchens offer no cups, glasses, or anything for meal preparation. Guests are disappointed to find a good number of essential elements are missing in the rooms.
