Staff very friendly and helpful. A bowl of fresh fruit in our kitchen was wonderful when we arrived. A guest laundry would be a great asset for the complex as well as hair dryers in each cabin

Pleasant Stay
The Sunhaven is small, cute resort with great views of the beach and ocean right from your deck. The beach has quite a bit of coral so it would be a good idea to wear water shoes. You can take a short walk down to find an area with less or no coral. The bungalows are spacious and have an 80's vibe to walls and wicker floral furniture. The resort and rooms are clean. They have a barbecue, hammocks and water shoes for use. The office is only open a few hours per day so I feel it's important to notify them of your flight information so arrangements can be made for check in. They can arrange airport transport for $25 per person (the airport is 6 km away) but we decided to hire a taxi ourselves and it only cost $10 per person. They have beach towels available however they require a $25 cash deposit on them.
