Positive Reviews


Peaceful, quiet and private

If it's peace and quiet you are looking for, this hotel is the perfect choice for you. Situated on a private island, there are no main roads within sight. You will feel secluded during your stay, with the sounds of the ocean and nature to give your time at this hotel a unique character.


Stunning beach location

This hotel is situated just steps from the shores of the island. You will be able to spend hours on the beach without having to get back to the hotel in time for dinner. You won't have to worry about transport costs either.

Negative Reviews


Average and expensive on-site food

Although you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to on-site dining, you will be quite disappointed with the prices. The on-site restaurants are heavily expensive and offer average quality food. There are no other restaurants within walking distance from this hotel.


Expensive boat transfer

Even though most guests thoroughly enjoyed their stay at this hotel, there have been many complaints regarding the boat fee to get on and off the island. You are made to take this journey as there are no roads from the main land to the island.


No issues reported

So far, no recent negative opinion has been expressed by guests about this hotel.
