Booked here for 10 nights on our travel agent's recommendation. Must find new travel agent. We where told that the manger had just visited their office in Belfast and that the PCI had a major upgrade. So I booked here at short notice as my wife has been ill. It sounded so perfect, just the place to go and relax.... More

Don't let the bad reviews fool you. If you are used to the Ritz or The Four Seasons, you're probably gonna want to stay away (and you'll probably ruin the atmosphere anyway...) but if you enjoy a beachfront hotel that's cool and casual, this is your place. We checked in the same night they were having a pre-Kenny Chesney concert... More

The hotel itself has been redone wonderfully! The restaurant has great food. We ate there for breakfast and dinner. Both times the service was wonderful and the food was very good.

I came to visit this hotel for Labor Day weekend, which I'm guessing draws a younger crowd. We had an enjoyable stay overall, but my biggest complaint was the crowd noise, which I should have expected.
