I was staying for just one night and was quite blown away by the place: the location, the service, the atmosphere...everything! I opted for 2 treatments and was very impressed by the level of service and sincerity of the therapists. Staff in the hotel were friendly, but not pandering, professional but not haughty. Just right! My room's bathroom looked like... More

Had a wonderful break for our anniversary. Made full use of the Swim club had an amazing hot rock massage. Swam in the fantastic infinity pool and enjoyed the amazing views. The room was clean comfortable and well serviced. The food was really good and the service friendly. Will definitely be returning again.

Absolutely beautiful hotel; stayed during the Summer and the rooms were clean and well presented, the staff of the living space were friendly and efficient, food was great and the beach is beautiful. Only criticism is that there could be more choice of food on the menu, but otherwise a great experience. Will be back many a time!

Lovely hotel in a et location for getting out and exploring the surrounding area. The beach was nicely secluded when we went and surprisingly peaceful. The rooms, although not entirely to our taste, were nicely decorated and good in size. It seems that its it is more a family hotel than one for couples.

We have just spent 4 nights at this hotel to celebrate my partner's 40th birthday. Had a lovely stay. Feel relaxed and feel like we have had a good break. If you're new to surfing, then check out the extreme academy and ask for Carl. He was awesome and very patient! Food was great and highly recommend Fifteen. Great beach... More

Julie and I stayed here with my son, who was visiting from Singapore. The rooms, bedding & pillows were excellent, as was the taster menu at Fifteen and the breakfast before departure. Service at the hotel and Fifteen were also top quality and overall I was very happy with our choice of venue. The beach walk we had in the... More

We booked a suite to stay in March for our wedding anniversary. The room was great with beautiful views. We initially booked to stay here because we wanted to eat at Fifteen again and not need to drive. We booked the Taste of the Bay deal which included 1 dinner each both in Fifteen and Zacry's the hotel restaurant, plus... More
