We stayed in one of the upstairs units which was very spacious and fairly well appointed. Some of the bungalows looked pretty old but I...

We stayed for 3 nights and I would have loved to stay longer. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant and bar had a really nice chilled out atmosphere with a great selection of music playing and a nice selection of cocktails. We had the BBQ one night and it was delicious. Great for a relaxing break.
