We have just got back from a fantastic weekend at the Fortress. The hotel is beautifully finished with the central point being the wonderful pool which gives away to the rolling ocean. The rooms are very comfortable and have great amenities - decent sized fridge, pod coffee machine and fabulous bath.
The service by all the staff was excellent. We especially enjoyed the spa services - sublime indeed.
All very much worth the 2 hour drive.
