We stayed here just before Christmas and had a lovely time as a family. The cabins are quite close to each other but the set up is very cleverly done and you do not feel as though you are overlooked. The swimming pool area was very nice and secure and the kiddies pool was ideal for our three year old....

Nice setting, quite cabin-like accommodation. We stayed with our three young boys and it worked out well. The especially liked the giant chess set. Close to town and felt secure the whole time. Nice place

The cabins are really close to each other and noisy arrivals and departures continued till early hours of morning with no sign of security control of noisy neighbors , no point in calling security if they were not even checking that unauthorized people were coming and going - cars came and went not belonging to visitors but rather their 'friends'...

The idea of individual log cabins by the sea is great, but they haven't got it right. The walls between the adjoining cabins are paper thin, therefore it's noisy. After our first night we asked to move because of the noise. This was accommodated and we were told no-one else would be staying in the adjoining cabin. This was untrue...
