Our stay was remarkable. We love the reception greetings, the F&B and the rooms. Spectacular views over the ocean and lovely atmosphere. I loved the Goodies pantry with all kinds of cookies and drinks. TO be repeated.

It's true... every glowing review... and it's even BETTER in person. I hesitated writing this review because I didn't want to advertise the Ellerman's perfectly perfect experience.

Rooms are impeccable, views are to die for, grounds are meticulous, food delicious, service offerings over-the-top... but...
