Self catering but the 2 beach bars are both very good so we always ate there. Beach is great. Facility is clean, secure, friendly and well run. Only negative is not being near a supermarket or ATM onsite, the beach at nearby Tofo is amazing and there's a small town market and ATM there, 500 M in a taxi each way. ($5 US). So worth spending some days over there. Dive shop here (Barra Reef) is good, did a nice shallow reef dive, good fun.
