Stayed on Isango Gate overnight during a business trip and was pleasantly surprised as we turned into the driveway. Hidden in a residential area with subtle signage, this is truly a hidden gem. With only 6 rooms, this boutique hotel does not minimize on anything. It is pure luxury from the moment you step in. Highly recommended to families as... More

I stayed at this hotel since most of the accommodation I normally use was fully booked. This was because of the Iron Man competition. This establishment has the feel of a modern hotel with all the amenities. The rooms are neat and spacious. The pool, dining hall and bar area are well decorated. The premises are neat. The staff were... More

We stayed for two nights attending a friends wedding. On arrival we were too early for check in and had to leave for 2 hours until the room was ready. At no point was there a suggestion to have lunch while waiting etc. The room was ok but was expecting to see the sea directly from room but you had... More

We had our Year End Function at this hotel and what a wonderful time we had!! Firstly the layout of this hotel is wonderful and not too far from the main road and very close to the beach. The dining area is beautifully laid out with a view of the swimming pool. The food was marvelous with not that much... More

Situated very close to the beach this Boutique Hotel and Spa has very generously sized rooms equipped with all the amenities one requires from a five star establishment. The bar downstairs has a decent selection of single malt whisky's, not overbearing yet enough to offer quality choices. But the winner must be Lerique, a local chef with a worldwide palate.... More

Good points: Excellent room, very good shower and bath, quiet location with the pool getting sun until sunset. Bad points: As we seemed to be the only guests in the hotel during our afternoon and evening stay, the bar was woeful, with bar staff sometimes there, sometimes not. No olives/nuts to chew on. The dinner was plain bad quality. Overlooked... More
