In general every thing is good only the cutlery could be improved. And when travel the ladies need a hear drier. When flying in it is not always possible to carry everything around. And for the price of the room per night I would have expected a hair drier and least 4 plates of each kitchen cutlery that is the same

It's a beautiful place,clean and well decorated.The only problem is the "king sized bed" which is actually 2 single beds pushed together and it's uncomfortable sleeping on it because it keeps moving and leaving a space in between.

Shakas seat was absolutely beautifull.Very neat and tidy.However the king sized bed that was mentioned is actually two single beds put together which seperate quite easily while being utelised.It is also quiet difficult to access the beach at night or pop out in case of emergency as the property is locked up and alarm activated and one feels bad to wake up the in charge.
