We stayed in Racarrel Bay Lodge 1, so the most Western of the lodges and we absolutely loved it. I think this lodge was the most private out of all of the lodges. There was lovely walks straight from the lodge in both directions. Amazing sunrises, the whole place was very clean, the hot tub was superb and very clean. Everything one needed to make mRead moreeals during a self catering holiday. Covid guidelines and procedures were excellent and explained in a booklet in the lodge. Highly recommend. Hide
