    The pool was filthy and unusable and it was like that the full five days and apparently had been like that before we arrived. There was a dangerous broken step, plugs and lights didn't work. We won't be staying there again in that neglected condition.

    Stayed in the "Bliss". Stunning room with super comfy bed. Room was very clean and has nice view of Hobie beach. We enjoyed an evening at their bistro and bar. Mussel pot and camembert wedges are delicious. Friendly staff. Will go back anyday!
