          We spent a week in April 2015 and from the very warm welcome with cocktails in the pool to the sunset cruise on the catamaran Mufasa, we were pampered and nothing was ever too much trouble. The food was amazing - beautifully presented and a...More

          Hi, I am staying here in November and just wondering, although our accommodation is already paid for, can we pay for extras with visa credit card or is it best to bring cash and if so which currency is best? Also, are towels for swimming and bathroom supplied?! Thanks Sue
