Had a wonderful time at Ocean Drive. The rooms were huge especially the ocean views, everything spotless. Breakfast was delicious, freshly cooked and sourced with specials every day. Sarah and Glenn were very warm hosts with lots of local knowledge. A great place to stay in a stunning part of the world.

Just had three fabby nights at Ocean Drive. Spotlessly clean. Very comfortable room. Excellent breakfast & packed lunches. Lots of lovely personal touches. Adorable dog, Ralph, available for hugs. And the hosts, Sarah & Glenn, weren't bad either. Seriously, nothing was too much trouble - we were very well looked after. Top marks to Sarah & Glenn.
