We booked well ahead of time for this hotel, knowing it was the holiday season and it was a smaller boutique hotel. In that time of booking to the time the hotel charged our card, it had expired, so we struggled with getting the deposit paid online or by phone for a couple days, but in the end it all worked out.
We loved the place once we arrived. They helped us arrange a taxi from the airport, gave us a welcome drink, showed us around the grounds, and then to our room... the only 2 level room they have. The bed is upstairs in a loft and the rest of the room is downstairs. Different, but no space to lounge, unpack, or get ready. We asked to move and it was accommodated even in their busy time for the next two nights.
The office staff was wonderful at making our stay a good one. Even when we needed to leave early for tours, they had tea and breakfast to go for us. The guard in the evening was a delight. Super friendly and accommodating. We loved using the pool one of the afternoons, we only wish we could have enjoyed it more.
It was super close to the water front, so close that you could walk in 15 mins. Also, close to other places to eat or get food to eat in. I would for sure come back.
