The bungalows here are oversized with air-con within and hot-water, half-open-to-the-air bathrooms to the rear. The decks are of a reasonable size and the bungalows are spaced out sufficiently to keep the neighbours' racket to a minimum. The better bungalows have concertina doors, meaning you can better open them to catch the breeze, and as the one we were shown was quite stuffy, that's probably a good idea. Beds are oddly super-wide -- like wide enough to sleep four adults -- and rooms have small flatscreen TVs. Internet is advertised but we didn't try it. At the base of the headland is a massage sala, a pier and a couple of ideal spots to take in the sunset with a cold drink. While there is no beach here to speak of, the management said the snorkelling off the point was quite good and it did look promising.
