I am actually glad we got lost. None of us were familiar with the area and we thought about returning home after our initial accommodation was canceled. Excellent venue with excellent service. Im definitely going back.

Hi Do you have wifi in the rooms?
Yes there is wi-fi in most of the rooms , some have a slightly stronger signal than others.In times of high season the entire area generally experiences problems due to over usage but these are unfortunately out of our control.The area around the bar and restaurant however seem to constantly have a strong signal.
