Hi Could you please advise if the beach is walking distance from this hotel and if so how far a walk it is? Also do you need to be a golfing fan to stay here? Thanks Monita

"The "veranda" is a bit misleading. You can't actually go outside on your veranda. The windows open up slightly."
"The road hole bar does amazing cocktails."
"upgrade to an old course facing room"
"The golf course view is worth the extra cost"
"The question asked by Trip Advisor related to a hotel. I did not grade a hotel, I graded a golf course."
