Very pleasant hotel with wonderful ocean views across the bay with all the yachts. Fine swimming pool (why does it take 35 minutes to get us towels?) and good food beside the ocean (but why oh why have a big tomato ketchup bottle on every table and sent out with every room service meal? This destroys the sense of fine dining and becomes a low-class caff). Rooms in the new wing are spacious and well-ewquipped (oddly positioned TV) and some - not all - have uninterrupted ocean views. Good buffet breakfast and pleasant short walks within the grounds, but don't expect a beach as such. Short taxi ride to shops and other restsaurants. About 15 minutes into Dar centre (60+ at rush hours). Arthur at Reception can solve most problems.
