Fodor's Review

It's unusual to find a self-catering establishment that is quite this sophisticated and understated with clean lines, black granite, and stainless-steel finishes. The suites and public rooms are spacious, and all share breathtaking ocean views. The two double rooms don't have a direct sea view, though you can see the water from the balconies, and they have only showers, whereas the suites have roomy showers and tubs. A steep, twisty path leads to a small beach that is

easily seen from all the suites. All the accommodations have kitchenettes, but there are also two well-equipped communal kitchens (plus barbecues) for preparing meals, which you can then serve in the big sea-view dining room or on the veranda. It's a bit like having your own beach house. The house next door, which has been redecorated and has almost as good a view, is a great bargain for families.
