Had a nice stay, played golf one day but couldn't play competition golf with ladies which I like to do when travelling around. Nice location close to beach but not patrolled. Room was clean but need toaster or some more appliances in room.

Professional friendly and helpful reception staff. The sofa bed was already made up inside the sofa so we could use it as a sofa until bedtime. Reception lent me scissors without any fuss. It was nice to go to sleep to the sound of the ocean. The east-facing room was a bit hot in the morning but the aircon fixed... More

Stayed for one night in mountain view room. Quiet. No furniture on balcony was a bit odd. If you can afford it, a golf course room would have great views. Dining room in clubhouse has lovely outlook for breakfast. Close to beach and city.

Excellent Customer Service from the Reception to the Restaurant made this a very pleasant and relaxing week away for us. The Restaurant serves good sized meals for a decent price, and the breakfasts really set you up for the day. The staff really are fantastic - well done !

My husband and I booked two rooms for ourselves and my mother in law. The hotel telephoned the day before to check that it wasn't an anomaly with two rooms booked under the same name. That was good they checked - it would have been even better had they suggested an interconnecting room but we weren't given that option (granted... More
