Arrived at this place just wanting to have a mini break, see the sea and relax. The rooms were beautifully appointed (choose the superior seafront rooms for best value) and had a huge patio/deck with a gorgeous view of the beach. The food was amazing (calamari salad to die for) and the staff couldn't do enough for us. I even... More

Had a fantastic dinner here. Suran was the man who helped us through the menu. The food is great and the venue brilliant not sure where you can find closer to the sea. The wine list isn't extensive but will cater for most needs. If you are looking for a romantic dinner place this is it.

Super friendly staff that truly goes over & above the call of duty. My close friend got married here & the location & vibe of the place was magnificent. For your special day, look to the kind folk at this establishment to plan an evening / couple of days to remember.

Excellent staff, wonderful service. The only criticism was that the weather was absolutely dreadful. The kitchen staff were at times overwhelmed with the sheer magnitude of orders during breakfast. However the cuisine on offer was absolutely wonderful. Recommend this place to anyone :)
