Excellent service delivered for the surprise birthday party of my husband where I gathered some 30 guests. Welcome was first class and the food and service were thoroughly enjoyed by my guests. Setting was idyllic with the blue sea and tropical trees in the background. One of my guests described the event as awesome. Fully recommended.
