Resort is older but it’s super clean, stocked with everything you need including bbq equip and pool toys etc Kids didn’t touch an iPad The people who run it Sue and Peter were super friendly and just have done a magnificent job. Gardens are beautiful and right on the beach 10/10

      Smugglers is perfectly located and is a very well kept property. The apartment is simple, but spacious, clean and has absolutely everything you need. Nothing is too hard for the management, and simple things like a free laundry and washing powder, a barbeque with all tools and even a library of board games makes you feel at home. To add to this, the place is absolute beachfront and the beaches around there are amazing! Thanks Sue and Pete, we will be back!

      This resort is an example of how a place should be run. The apartment is clean with absolutely everything needed provided. The kitchen, dining and living room is perfect and tastefully decorated, the bedroom is spacious with a comfortable bed and the bathroom is huge. The garden setting is nicely done and the pool and barbecue area are great. Just as a rock star's amplifier can go to 11, I have to give this place 11/10
