How did you like the accommodation?


Location was great. Garden units are good sized, but a bit basic. Lovely to have the outdoor patio. Resort has well maintained grounds and beautiful pool with view to ocean.

Thanks for coming! Hope to see you soon :) we really enjoy to share this experience with you!

How did you like the surf lessons?


Instructor Pierre was fantastic and very knowledgable about local conditions. Together with Roxanne, they advised on other activities and facilitated our arrangements and made every day a pleasure. Good selection of board sizes and easy to change boards if desired. Surf was fine but essential to have advice from Pierre regarding best tides to go out as surf conditions are very influenced by tides at this beach-break.
