A great hotel for families - plenty to do inside and out. The beach is on the doorstep and the 15 min walk to town makes the Esplanade a very convenient hotel. The reception staff are very friendly and the board games in the lobby and the evening entertainment (even though a little hit-and-miss) ensured that children were content to let their parents relax with a drink! Our room was very spacious and had a patio door opening out onto a grassy play area, which allowed us to go back and forth to the beach without carrying bodyboards etc. through the main lobby.
Apart from the fact that the swimming pool was a lot smaller than it appears in the photos, my only complaint was the limited and expensive parking spaces. Although the receptionist told us that there was plenty of free parking on the street outside, in reality it was permanently taken up by surfers' vans from dawn until dusk. This meant that we were hesitant to move the car to explore the beautiful area as much as we would have liked to.
All in all, great value and a hotel that we would consider coming back to, and recommending to our friends.
