TripAdvisor Guest Review (April 5, 2012) - "The food was just amazing. We brought our fresh caught fish back and the kitchen sent up what is undoubtedly the best meal we have ever had. They started with sushi and then sent banana leaf baked, mango sauce, grilled fish and rice, potatoes and perfectly cooked vegetables. Divine."

About Us Guest comments

My husband and I stayed there for a week, we are frequent travelers but the courtesy and their desire to make you confortable and happy it goes above and beyond many places we have stayed at. It was my husband's birthday and I asked them to prepare a surprise dinner for him, well I did not expect anything close to what they prepared, a candle light dinner by the ocean with great food and baked a caked specially for him. I dont want to mention anyone specific because I don't want to miss any of the great employees they have from the front desk to the maintenance crew. Thank you to all of you for being the great people you are.
