10/10 Exceptional

Great friendly staff. Small intimate hotel. Grounds were lush and beautiful. Quiet and secluded. Very close to beach, restaurants, shopping and National Park. Hot breakfast options could be better. The pool is very small, so if there are kids around, it's pretty much unavailable to adults.
