I have never been so disappointed with a hotel. Booked Saturday night here to celebrate my Mams birthday. 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...

Feels like stepping into a home away from home, with a beautiful sea view and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Food delicious and service was excellent. The staff were especially nice, their kindness and hospitality making the stay especially memorable.

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... More

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 😀

What a location. Just taken aback by the setting and the great design. The whole complex is awesome. Kids loved it here. Would also love to stay in the holiday homes.The parking is great. The beach is so close. Just a pity it is seasonal.
