                      There was no hot water. Couldnt report to anyone as there was noone on duty after hours and no contact number for anyone. This really put a dampner on our stay which we were very much looking forward to. Very dissappointing.

                      We absolutely loved our stay. Would definitely come back for a longer stay next time.

                      We loved the private deck with beautiful views, the fact that staff came in every day to clean up, the sound of water lapping at night.

                      We stayed in the Honeymoon chalet for 10 nights. What a wonderful experience. Staff were friendly and the rooms were clean.
