We really enjoyed our stay at Lazy Lizard, the room was immaculate with all the necessary supplies. The room was also serviced daily, accept for one day whereby Wendy notified us in advance as the domestic was off sick, I found this to be so polite and Wendy even offered to clean the room which we of course declined as there was no need, Wendy really went out of her way to make our stay comfortable :). The accommodation is close to all amenities and very easy access to the beach. It also has a little garden, so one does not feel restricted. There was also a cot for my one year old son which clean and was also service daily. If you are looking for an affordable, clean and safe place to stay, I would suggest Lazy Lizard anytime. We would definitely consider staying there again.

Thank you Wendy and Chris for you hospitality.
