Booked this the day before and so happy with it. Across the road from the beach, plenty of bars and restaurants in walking distance - one even next door. Rooms were spacious and spotless. The pool was a good size from 4ft to 8ft deep with views of the beach and plenty of sun loungers and space. The staff were... More

We only required a one night stay so we chose a room facing the back (bay side) of the hotel and we were surprised to find a bay view! We did ask for a trundle bed twice which never came. However this hotel is an excellent location with many shops and restaurants very close by, so no need to drive... More

After checking out a few other spots and being less than impressed I was lucky enough to find this gem of a hotel! The staff was so friendly, the room was clean,... More

The Beachview Inn is situated in a perfect location. Park, check in and enjoy. The beach is across the street and everything else is walking distance. The room was perfect for a family of 4. Mini refrigerator, mini stove top with 2 burners. Small sink. Not fully stock with kitchen utensils. Had one small pot and one pan. The sunset... More

Aside from the view (which is very special) our stay was horrendous. The hotel management freely allows other guests to pile hordes of extra guests into their rooms and party loudly and at all hours both in their rooms and in the pool area basically ruining everyone else's holidays. We couldn't use the pool area as it had been taken... More
