What started out as a men only, 60th pre-birthday bash, ended up being a hell of a 5 day celebration in 5 star comfort - one of our friends immediately booked the entire hotel for December 2017.
This is a place one needs to book out in it's entirety to be enjoyed with family and friends or in solace. It is not a place in my opinion to be shared with strangers.
Schantelle [yes - unique spelling] is absolutely brilliant at what she does - nothing is too much trouble or too strange a request, even when coming from a male only contingent.
The meals we enjoyed beat in restaurant in the area. We enjoyed lots of activities - diving, catamaraning, visiting the market and local must see spots. There is so much to do. Despite much initial bravado, deep sea fishing was not something anyone pursued although it was on offer - I think it had to do with opening the Jameson at 4am when the first ball was bowled in the Oz vs SA cricket test.
I recommend at least one visit in your life.
