Visited friends who stayed in the family room. Seemed excellent value for money. Staff impressively switched on. Menu simple but well-prepared. Nice, chilled out place for more budget-oriented travelers. Beach fills up in the afternoon/low tide with villagers which may be a bonus or not.

Friendly staff, cozy atmosphere and fresh good food. Highlight: They got 4course menu that changes everyday, you can pick from 2-3 different options per course. We went there several times, always enjoyed the food.

We popped over to the Lodge for night-fun / music / dinner, and then again for early morning coffee in hopes of seeing monkeys (we did!). Great all around spot, atmosphere, food/drink options... location is perfect!

I went to have dinner with my husband and they had a 4 dish menu that was very good, with a vegetarian option and all made with local and fresh ingredients. They have strong wifi, always a plus in paradise. The staff is very friendly to.

If you need to enjoy Live music and even dance , this is the place.We often needed to go on a noisy place to enjoy live music and dance. Music was a bit ....strange, imagine amateur musicians, but this was the funny part as they improvised.

I really enjoyed my few days staying in the beach house at Red Monkey - and indeed I had a family of Columbus Monkeys visit the tree outside my house! An amazing experience! Very chilled surroundings and lovely terrace to hang out overlooking the gorgeous beach. My only suggestion would be to improve the customer complaints service...when I mentioned my... More
