We just used the African Queen room for 2 nights and had a wonderful, relaxing (yet activities are there at hand!) time - excellent get away location, quiet and secluded, but not too far from amenities (had a great supper at Daphne's - Greek style salmon - yummy!). The facilities are top-notch, luxury but with character you would not find...

We walked in the door and were wowed by the place. It was spacious and beautifully decorated. The view from the windows was spectacular. We had a lovely stay. The second visit was just...

Tuwanek hotel, having just stayed the weekend in the Sunset Beach suite. Stayed with two-year-old, location had lots to see but wouldn't be recommended for a young family due to the many steps down to the beach. Location is out of the way, depending on your desire this may be a benefit or hinderance. It's about a 15 minute drive...

In most cases the Ipad chargers are accidentally packed and often returned the next day. In your case it had been put away in another location away from...

We stayed in the Wild Berry Cottage and it had everything you will want. We enjoyed cooking in the well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed the sound of the creek out back. The bed was super comfortable and the private hot tub out back was amazing. There wasn't one thing we didn't like about it. Fantastic place to stay. Very helpful...

The Tuwanek Hotel is truly a gem in paradise! We celebrated my boyfriends birthday here and couldn't have picked a better place. We felt pampered and enjoyed the relaxing private atmosphere.
