“Great Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Something for everyone. Lovely beaches. Entertainment from Irish bars to fine dining. Loved it. The boardwalk along the beaches was great and caught happy hour and had a glass of wine and people watched. Very clean.

“Great Beaches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

The beaches here were great and clean, and were a highlight of the holiday. The excursions that are available were great. There was a handful of fairly good resturants and bars, reasonably priced, but some resturants were lacking.
