We stayed here for 4 days. A lovely old colonial style hous in a beautiful valley location with own beach and pool surrounded by exotic plants,trees and birdlife. Excellent view of sea from our balcony and very comfortable room.Most staff were very helpful (with one or two exceptions). The main problems were the limited choice of menu and snacks only available at the pool bar during the day, especially on BBQ night when some food was undercooked, late and puddings ran out!Other a la carte was very tasty with fresh fruit and vegetables from their own gardens....Some nights it was difficult to get a drink from the bar as it had closed VERY early .Our first night we were all sent out for a meal and this was excellent food in old sugar plantation surroundings. I think if you stay for 3 days or more then it would be best to hire a car. A good quiet location for birdwatchers, altho' have many day visitors to see hummingbird feeders and have tea and perhaps a cake (at outrageously expensive prices). The fruit punch by the pool brings back happy memories.The water was not very calm when we stayed ( unusual weather perhaps) and my partner did a bit of fishing from the rocks. We would go back!
