Have stayed several times at “the Lure” and each time pleasant enough. Rooms are adequate, make sure you ask for upper rooms with view. All rooms clean & tidy. We (4 of us) always ask for the dual key rooms, 2 rooms, 1 with good sized kitchen, dining and sitting area, the other just a bedroom and bathroom. Had a... More

Spent one night in the hotel part of the property. Room was located on the 2nd floor which was easily accessible by stairs or lift. Room was very basic with little furniture, small tv and no chairs so sitting on the bed was the only option. Considering the price of more than $250.00 we were a bit surprised to discover... More

Four of us stayed in a two bedroom apartment with views. It was modern and clean. Great location, within walking distance to the Marina and shops.

My family and I stayed here for two nights. The rooms were all a great size, beds were comfy and everything was clean. We have a very good views over the oceans. We also used the pool, which was clean and refreshing.

I stayed here as part of a group, so we had about four 2/3 bedroom units. The rooms were all a great size, beds were comfy and everything was clean. There seemed to be good sound insulation too, as I didn't hear any other guests at all during my stay (including the noisy people in my group). My only real... More
