I had a marvellous stay here. The room was very comfortable and had excellent facilities. I had a great view over the sea and sands. The swimming pool is lovely and I went for a swim before breakfast. You can easily walk down to the beach in 5 minutes, though the hotel lay on free transport if you need it....

We had a huge room and bathroom, I was totally impressed. We walked to the beach and drank 5 coconut water every day. Hotel was lovely, but the only issues I had was that the life guard and police would not let us swim, so we just used the pool for a dip and went for a walk to the...

The hotel has pleasant spacious rooms , The restaurant was very good, we were well looked after by excellent staff. I don't know why they call this hotel on the beach when it clearly is a distance from it. It's a good enough hotel without the exaggeration about its location!!
