We stayed for one night and had a very good experience. The hotel is on a river running into a beautiful bay with a fantastic beach. Saw whales from the shore. The rooms are nice, but the hotel’s best feature is it stunning location.

Food for the soul. We spent some warm, sunny days in mid-winter here with our young kids. We got the chance to truly relax here and enjoyed the adventures of the boat trip, kayaks and beach. The setting is amazing and the sunrises are quite something. The staff were incredibly intuitive of our needs. The road to the resort is... More

The place is an absolute gem!!! Seeing is believing!! The trip was very event full especially the trips across the river to go fish every day. The beaches were untouched and fantastic to swim and just chill.

We stayed for 5 nights at Wavecrest with our kids and another family. We had a great time - the setting is absolutely beautiful & the staff friendly. We had a sea-facing chalet and it was wonderful to wake up with a view over the river and sea. Our days were spent fishing and canoeying. It was great not to... More

An excellent setting but scratch the surface and the warts come out'. This resort is tired and needs a full revamp. The food is very average as are the rooms. as for the service it certainly left a lot to be desired. I will not be back in a hurry if at all.
