Lovely overnight stay with dinner and breakfast. Great location, very close to beach front or short walk to town. Staff were fantastic with my son and really went out of their way to ensure we had a great experience. Dinner and breakfast were both excellent and the bar was nice and comfortable to enjoy some cocktails. Absolutely loved the hotel... More
