Very comfortable hotel. We love the vibe, and although we do not necessarily participate in the activities, they make the hotel lively. The food is so-so, but there are many good restaurants nearby, so this is not a problem.

your service is outstanding just these minor things that can be sorted out easily, but beside that your hotel offers best service ever, what you advertise is the service that you offer which is seldom found in other places.

One often thinks one must travel overseas to enjoy first class service as this has always been the case. Wow, did Beacon Isle really open my eyes to what we have here on our door step. Great service, great place and very little to complain about! We ate at the resort most of the time as the food was great... More

Great stay as always, lots of effort in terms of entertainment from the Hotel. 2pm check in was a bit congested, but very helpful staff members. Beacon Isle will see us real soon, what a fantastic location.

Will recommend this resort. It is right on the beach front and has awesome facilities, including a decent gym. Surrounding area is clean and safe. Woolworths and Spar just up the street. Seagulls on the beach and walking along the window ledge, awesome!

This is a restuarant inside the Beacon Ilse Resort.We ate there in Feb when we stayed there.We now rented a house for a week and ate there on two evenings.The food was outstanding ,the staff in my opinion could give lessons to other restuarants in how to be the perfect waiters.Once again thanks for two great nights out.

We regularly use this hotel when in the area. Good standard of rooms and excellent position. Often busy as it is a time share resort so food quality and choice is limited. Preferable to eat out in the town restaurants.
