The hotel rooms are stand alones, very spacious, clean and we had a room almost on the beach!!! Definitely not the normal crampy hotel rooms with a lovely view of the ocean from your bed!... More

I stay at this hotel regularly as it is perfect for me. The rooms are spacious and clean, and have fabulous views. Very few are more than a few metres from the beach. There is one main pool and a number of plunge pools throughout the gardens. There is a small coral shelf in front of the hotel, but it... More
