We stayed in the co-ed dorm for the first couple of nights as the private rooms were fully booked. Then we moved into a private room for our last night which topped off a good stay here.
The only downside to the dorm was there was no power points accessible for bed 1&2 as the outlets are behind a bench seat that goes along the wall & our plugs would not fit behind. There was 2 plugs accessible to beds 3&4 but were used by our room mates. The barracks style dorm accommodation is not for us, I don't mind dorms but these only have a curtain blocking off the entrance to the room which offered less privacy to what dorms already normally lack.
Once in the private room we had a great stay, still used the shared washrooms but slept much better without people coming in at all hours & turning lights on & banging doors.
The staff were very friendly & helpful & the location was ideal for us to relax at the beach & also walked to BCU via the beach :)
