Perfect get away
Our stay was perfect. The check in was smooth. The welcome drink was refreshing. The Property was beautiful. We checked in late evening, didn't like the room that was allocated to us, informed the Reception and were helped with a change of room immediately. Their sensitivity to our request and quick action set the tone for the rest of the stay. Food at the Shack as well as The Palm was great. The Property is connected to the Beach wherefrom the Son could book his water sports while we lounged. Overall a great stay.
