Loved our stay, the bungalow was perfectly place centrally and the seclusion in your own bungalow was ideal for us! The staff were amazing. Such a good price for your own hut of that standard!

These bungalows are perfectly located to walk to the beach, pools and attractions. Also having a golf cart made the sunset easy at One-Tree Hill being 5 mins away.

My bungalow was close to resort pools, beach and most facilities I required as I was on the island for a nursing conference. I was able to walk easily to conference venue and the two bus route stop every day. I didn’t need to hire a buggy.

Had a lovely stay, the only issue we had was a very intoxicated man from Bungalow 14 tried to get into my daughter's bungalow 18 about midnight, then verbally abused & threatened my husband, we were in B16.Security came & dealt with him but this left us very unsettled for the rest of the night & stay.
