We stayed in one of the 8 hotel rooms and were very disgusted. Our shower had black mold, the carpets were stained, and there was makeup on my pillow case that was not mine. When we tried to speak to someone the desk was empty and restaurant staff was very busy. The view was beautiful and dinner was nice. The...

On arrival, around 1:30pm I brought my 3 year old daughter to use the toilets, there was feces smeared on four different parts of the floor so we left to use the wheelchair accessible toilet which we could not find a light...

This is a beautiful hotel in a beautiful setting,with friendly staff. The dining lacks small touches such as prompt service and being able to serve what is on the menu. Also, while they offer coffee, they do not serve variety such as cappuccinos or lattes. These are small things I know, and it is good coffee! Its just odd for...

We were there two times with two families, ten people. The meals were very good, the specials of the day and from the card. The service was nice and for our kids it was perfect. Before the meals we went down to the beach playing football and watching the sea.

We stayed in the apartments beside the hotel but we ate in the hotel and used the facilities. The food is fantastic as are the staff. Mark and Caitlyn are so friendly and helpful. The view is out of this world and so worth a visit.

Not much to say other then breath taking. On a nice day it's views are beautiful, but equally on a bad day it's another kind of beauty. Nice tidy rooms and cool laid back service. Perfect place to hide away and just let the world pass you by..... They're chicken wings are outta this world too 😀
