Cantaloupe Aqua is a very private and trendy boutique hotel with a great view of the vast ocean. Young travellers would love the setting. It can improve in terms of quickness in service and the breakfast selection as it was very limited.

staying in this hotel is a pleasure. The staff is genuinely friendly and they are willing to oblige you in any need you have. The hotel is well designed, with beautiful paintings and the most stunning view of the ocean from your bed. We are sleeping like a baby here.

Great, helpful and service minded staff. Great location by the sea. Great and various food. Choose rooms in the upper floor to get some privacy. Too bad the beach is washed away. Plunge pool, small but it was refreshing. This will be a top spot if the beach returns.

The best food we have ever eaten and around £4-5 for a delicious main meal. The best food huge choice and a lovely basket of freshly baked roles and butter before your meal.... More
