Everything that's been said about the superb beach, beautiful grounds, lovely fantasy pool and friendly staff is spot on. We are staying in one of the four storey exec beachfront rooms. The view is fabulous and the chambermaid thoughtfully put up a hammock on our balcony. I reckon 3rd/4th floor is best for the view and privacy. The rooms are clean and the bed comfortable ... yes the furniture is a little dated but the hotel are refurbishing and the clean bathroom, air-con, complimentary fridge and tea/coffee making facilities mean you want for nothing. We, cheekily, have checked out several of the other hotels and none compare on value or especially location. Be prepared to pay $100 ECD for breakfast and $150 ECD for dinner plus drinks ... this isn't expensive but make sure you check out other dinning options too (e.g. Aquarium, the Beach House, Umbrellas, Coconut Beach - to name a few). A car isn't essential as taxis are good value, but we used Y&R and this has helped us explore, check-out where we want to eat and see other beaches at our leisure. Our thanks to Linda and the restaurant team ... stay here you'll love it!
