A beautiful place to stay. The views are stunning, the rooms are beautiful. I took my partner there for the weekend to propose and with help from the more than willing staff it was a magical experience.

I stayed at The Darling and thought it was brilliant. The breakfast was sensational and different from the usual standard buffet at many hotels, The room over looking the pool was spacious and the bed was comfortable too.
