Guestbook

We are proud to have a high proportion of returning guests, and positive testimonials. A big thanks to all guests who’ve taken the time and trouble to send us comments. Naturally we bask in the compliments, but we also appreciate the suggestions, which are immensely helpful too.

In addition fellow guests share useful tips about restaurants, things to see and do, and places to explore. For example we didn’t know about Atlantis Turtle Cruises until our lovely guest Natalie told us about George. Now it’s one of our favs.

Our new online form introduced star-ratings.

Here’s what our guests have to say:
