Amazing spot! Super comfy bed and funky bathrooms...but the stay is not complete without experiencing the amazing dinners!! The best food I have had in a very long time. The desserts are works of art made from scratch with delicious ingredients. The beach is only 2 seconds away and the Coffee ship (Jacques Cousteau's old boat) is only a short...

The service was great, everybody was extremely helpful and gave us best recommendations for sight-seeing at Golden Bay. The room was clean and well-prepared. We enjoyed the style of the room as well as the special style of the bathrooms. The kids said that this hotel was best ever... I promised them to book another stay in late November/early December....

The hosts of Sans Souci greeted me with great hospitality and made me feel very welcome to use their facilities such as their Kitchen, fridge etc. I got a real buzz out of being offered the beautiful fruit that were grown on the property. I found my stay very pleasing and would love to revisit indeed. I recommend this place...
