We spent a very enjoyable night at the Blue Whale Resort. The cottage was clean and comfortable with a magnificent view of the sea.

Nice and tidy, stunning view! Alarm not working, reported it, was not fixed. Some of the wooden stairs & pathway leading down to beach are broken and dangerous. Roof leaking. A few buttons on Dstv remote not working. More tupperware & crockery needed. Quiet and peaceful stay - thanks!
