    Excellent view from the room. Friendly and helpful reception staff. Restaurant with good food and good staff. Well maintained swimming pool over looking the sea. Natural private beach. Neat and clean rooms. This hotel will give you value for money.

    This resort is just beside Light House. It is within walking distance from Light House beach. The garden is nice and well maintained. The view from the garden is superb. The restaurant is good as well.
