Nice, small hotel, directly at the beach.
"all are family"

1 pool and 1 pool bar.

Can eat ordered foot everywhere in the hotel, also massage possible on the room, at the pool, at the beach.

Located in a wonderful village with very good sea food, restaurants with sea view, weekly street market.

Great place to be!

Thank you for your review and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. It is nice to hear you enjoyed our food and massages In addition you liked fisherman's village and the fact that all the bars and restaurants are only a short stroll away.

We stayed here in the quiet season in mid November and there were very few people in the hotel, but the staff were very friendly and helpful. Sue and Robin made a point of coming to find us to make sure we were OK and had all that we needed. Breakfast cooked to order and very nice with great coffee, plus a vast choice of snacks and meals available at other points in the day. This was an ideal quiet relaxing week for us after a lot of travelling and sightseeing. The room was lovely, with good AC and the DVD library was handy for a couple of rainy afternoons. Beach was also quiet and could not have been more convenient. The village is charming with a vast choice of places to eat - The Hut - opposite the hotel looks very small but has excellent well priced food. The night market on a Friday is also worth a visit. Pick up and drop off at the airport is an added bonus and one less thing to think about. A lovely welcoming place to stay.

Thank you for your review and kind comments. As you say the weather was good for the time of the year. In fact a nice day in November is lovely as it is generally sunny and quite cool. We are pleased that you liked the proximity to the village and that the staff were helpful. Pleased you enjoyed the fresh breakfasts and the food later.
We hope to see you again one day.

We stayed at the Waterfront for two weeks, and loved every day and bit of the experience (we actually ended up staying longer than planned..)! The Waterfront with its staff becomes more a home than a hotel, the host and hostess Robin & Sue treat you like extended family (they invited us to a Christmas day dinner and farewell party, cared to all our needs) and we simply can't recommend this place enough! The thing I liked the least was that we had to leave, the thing I liked the best was the Hotel's surprise gift they gave when I had my birthday (no spoilers here..)
Would come back!

Thank you for appreciative review. After you have seen so many hotels in the last year or so we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately your teams form has dipped since you left. Maybe you need to come back to improve it!

Everything was just perfect, with a personal touch to it all. Pick up at airport, personal welcome at arrival. Stayed 14 days (two more than planned!) with our two grown up sons who cherished this stay. Had the most relaxing holiday ever at Waterfront Hotel. Everyone in the staff were like family, kind, caring, hugging and joking every day. And the owners, Robin and Sue, took excellent care of us and became like dear friends. Took us to Christmas Day party, and farewell party for other guests. They arranged driving (no charge), and just went the extra mile every day. Wow!! Waterfront Hotel is a hotel with a personal touch to everything, and we had so much fun and enjoyment with the other lovely guests, who actually felt like us. A lot of them were coming back year after year! I would rather stay in a hotel like this, than in the most expensive, fancy high class hotel where everything is about money and outlook. Waterfront is not a hotel, but more like a home. You have to make an effort yourself, like in every family. It is a two way thing, and at Waterfront Hotel Robin and Sue and the staff start with a big and including welcoming smile. Enjoy your stay !

Room tip: All rooms have a sea view

Thank you for your very kind and appreciative review. It always makes us very happy that you enjoyed yourself so much.
We are pleased your enjoyed your Waterfront experience so much and have told the staff of your kind comments. We had such great guests over the Christmas period and you were certainly a great part of it. Pleased you enjoyed our Christmas Lunch together and the weather was very good as well.

It is very interesting your comments re large hotels and our set up and thank you again for your kind comments. We hope to see you again in the not too distant future.
