We have stayed in this place a couple of times and both times loved it. It is a little pricey but it's all worth it when you are enjoying a glass of wine in ur own hot tub on the balcony overlooking the ocean. It's peaceful, clean, quite & easy to find. The rooms are nice and the beds are... More

Absolutely a top spot overlooking the beach. Staff lovely and Restaurant was great. We stayed in room 18 but give this a big miss as the floor above has the Spa running and the noise in our unit was awful. Hope owners turn it off after 8pm or it will be a pain. I called management and they went and... More

We stayed there last Christmas & had a wonderful time & so, have booked in again for this year. The stairs were a problem for me (heart problems) ... no lift, & so this year we have booked a ground floor room. We also discovered a great Chinese rest. who delivered (details in room).

Stayed at this property as it came very highly recommended by a friend who often stays there. Yes it is a budget motel type location, the room is of a spacious size, the bed comfortable, the bathroom has great water pressure. However what makes this location so amazing is its closeness to the ocean. To be able to sit on... More

I had a room with a view of the ocean and it was just beautiful. The room itself was clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly, helpful, and polite. The shower was great, though sometimes the hot water was a bit slow to arrive. The screen door didn't quite close. Nice quiet location. The surf is very noisy and... More

Thank you for your comments and our sincere apologies. The rooms will be completely refurbished over the next two years however they should be very clean and functional now. Your experience was unacceptable but also not typical. We receive very few complaints with most guests having a wonderful stay and wanting to return. We will take action to ensure the... More

A very convenient type of accommodation for us, as we have toddler, and the bottom units at the back each have a small, secure courtyard attached; perfect for our 2-year-old. We stayed there twice, once at the end of 2014 and again in early 2015. The rooms are nice and large, the beds are quite comfy. However, the rooms ARE... More
