I typically stay here twice a year in March and October. The hotel now since my last stay in March has a new on-site manager and service has improved. There have been recent improvements to the rooms eg addition of coffee machine and in-situ hair dryer. On arrival the satellite box was not working but the staff swapped it out and resolved it promptly.
Please note if you need a microwave please choose rooms in the new "400" building as it has beefed up wiring.
The decks are bigger in the older 200 and 300 building though.
It does not get any more "beach front" than this. I will be back.
