"Extremely quiet and peaceful. We had a lovely room, the grounds were beautiful. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Food was very good, we had a lovely meal down near the lagoon that was very special. To get a lounger with a sea view however you had to put your towels out a 5:30 am or the night before!"
