  • The Galley — Your 24-hour snack headquarters. One on each floor, stocked with coffee, Pellegrino, ice cream, chips, and wine glasses for your latest local winery finds.

  • Mega comfy bed and soundproof rooms.

  • The General Store — A most lovely collection of home goods, artisanal products, provisions and linens; souvenirs your friends and family will actually adore. Even if you aren't staying at the hotel you should pop in here for a browse!

  • Sleek, electric, open-air Moke house car and beach cruisers.

  • Location, location, location — it couldn't be more central.

  • The service was truly authentic, no pretense, just good, kind people.

  • I would have loved to hear more timeless tunes — something nostalgic to match the charm and beauty of the locale.
