“Fantastic Sea Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2005

We spent a night at the Waterfront and it was fantastic. The room was huge with a very comfy king size bed, a nice sitting area and the bathroom was fantastic. I had a long soak in the jetted tub. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel restaurant. Dinner was excellent, breakfast was reasonably good. Our room faced the sea and we sat in front of the patio windows, sipping wine and listening to the surf crash before bed. One warning for North American travellers, check out is usually 10:00, we were dawdling and then phoned at 10:45 to see if we planned to stay another day.
