Travelled in 2019, the place was great to chill and had great food. You may stroll along the beach which is clean. Loved the morning tea and the hoppers. Rooms were very clean and well equipped. Overall stay was good with great food and service!

Hotel's Favorite
This was a holiday where we were looking for relaxation, and we found it. It has a relatively small number of guests, two super pools, a peaceful garden with palm trees for shade and access to the most incredible stretches of beach. The room was well appointed and clean, with good quality housekeeping. Staff were very attentive to our needs and responded swiftly when we asked. The wifi is comprehensive right across the site and consistently fast. The quiet calm across the hotel was valuable for us; this is not a hotel to use if you are looking for a party culture or a night life, but a quiet dinner, followed by civilised drink in the bar and to retire to the room undisturbed for the night was exactly what we were looking for. The staff are courteous and polite. The buffet is vast, a real attempt to cater for the needs of everyone.
