The food was acceptable, but the service was horrendous. The surliest waitress I have ever encountered. 2 plates were brought out after a LONG wait, but our third party didn't get his until the rest of us were almost done with our dinner.

The view is lovely, and I've never stayed in the hotel or seen the rooms so I can't judge that. Let's talk about the food--the service is very slow and I have no idea why but it has always been. The food, on the other hand, has gotten much better and if you're on a budget and patient it will... More

Food is slow, the evening staff is rude and clearly does not care to even be there...but it is the quality of the food that makes this place bad. I was told by several people that they used to be very good, but they got rid of a real staff...and now you get over cooked, tasteless food, or bad food.

Seating right on the water. I ordered a burger and fries for lunch but the fries didn't come and when I reminded the server, she came back to tell me the frier was turned off. That was disappointing. They stop serving lunch at 2 and reopen later for dinner. The burger was good and my friends loved their salads.

For lunch their place was ok, because of the view, but the rooms are not very good value. I thought I had booking here and when I arrived, they gave me a key of someone elses room... hmmmm...

Without lots of attention from the server, we still had a great meal with very tasty food on the waterfront. A storm blew in while we were eating, so we moved our plates to the inner bar area to escape being soaked. Unfriendly wait staff, but great food.

One of the cheaper palces to stay but the rooms are basic and need a fresh up. If you order food in the resto count at a waiting time of at least one hour before you get served. Staff is lazy and unfriendly. If you don't walk over to the counter to order there's a chance you can wait forever.

We were there to dive... and it was a bit of a rush everyday to make it back to our hotel (old Gin House) by 2 pm for lunch before the kitchen closed. On Wednesday, Old Gin house's kitchen is closed, thus we wanted lunch from Golden Era (next door). We arrived at 1:45 to order and were told that... More

Food is good, service is nice and you sit on a terrace on the sea. Very nice place after hiking a full day or swimming in the sea.
