He has a very warm... More

Excellent hotel. Very minimal in terms of facilities however that suited us fine. Rooms were awesome and extremely spacious. No fault with the rooms at all. The staff were very very good with one exception (see below). We are vegetarian and the waiters all took great care in ensuring that we were always well fed. The Reservations Manager, Dixon, in...

This hotel, located on the beach, is where you can have a relaxing time and be able to chill out under the sun. The facilities provided at this, or the sister hotel next door, are varied. DOA is where you can relax while next door is more lively. It is not somewhere for children or party animals. The accommodation is... More

Bit of a strange review as we have not stayed yet! We booked, but due to illness had to cancel. We wrote with proof of problems and without any quibble they refunded my deposit, even though it was chargeable. We will re-book soon!!
