    Excellent spot with beautiful Seaview but it's a shame that this resort feels run down and can do with a facelift and maintenance. Must have been a brilliant place when established. Location is perfect and can even walk to restaurants.

    We had the same problem as I wanted to go shopping at the Marina and my husband wanted to go visit a sick friend. Result I couldn't go shopping. There are many reasons why I could not recommend this establishment.
