When we arrived at the hotel we were warmly greeted by staff and given a lovely rum punch. We thouroughly enjoyed our stay and will go back! The hotel is only about 15mins walk away from st lawrence gaps main area where there are plenty of bars and restaurants if you wish to dine out! If you like fish then i would highly recommend Pisces also the Carpark bar is great it aprox cost £4/5 for a rum punch and a bottle of banks beer. Oistins on a friday night is well worth a look too! and if you are there in August for the crop over festival it is well worth going to see the parade!
Room:- The room we had was lovely and the view was breath taking! My only moan about the room was the bath was tiny and im only 5ft 1" but it wasnt a major issue.
Food:- Breakfast and lunch was buffet style served in 2 of the 3 restaurants with lots of variety. Evening meal at the "Chelonia" restaurant was buffet again but the theme changed every night (italian,mexican etc) we didnt eat at the waterfront on a night so i cant comment on that however we did eat once at the "Asiagos" which is fine dining and it was lovely!
Beach:- The beach was lovely and never struggled to get a bed which all had their own canopy. The water did get quite choppy on occasions but was to cool you down.
Staff:- the staff were brilliant and couldnt do enough for us.
Entertainment:- On a night there was a singer/music on which is on till about 11.30pm ish however the bar was open till 1ish
