We are proud to have a high proportion of returning guests, and positive testimonials. Thanks to everyone who has taken the time and trouble to tell us about their stay. Compliments are great, but we also appreciate suggestions, which are immensely helpful too.
We are keen for fellow guests to 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.
Here’s what our guests have to say:
