Wow I can't believe that people actually liked this place. I though it wasn't that nice, the kitched and games room were a mess, the owners have a smelly dog that runs all over the place. Basically the facilities aren't very good and really need a good refresh. However ever dark cloud has a silver lining, the staff are pretty good and very helpful.

stayed here for a few days recently and highly recommend it. Murray the owner is pretty mad but a total character and really cares about making your stay a good one. Has a really personal feel to it. they also have a good deal for swimming with dolphins-$99 and you get 2 nights free accomadation with them. The company they use is one in town which looks like the best one. It's on a proper sail boat with a real old sea dog called Butler. If you don't see dolphins you can go again another day for free so allow a couple of days here. Mount is nice as well with a wixked long sandy beach and ncie walks up the Mount. Hot salt water pools at the bottom are vey nice especially at night.
