Without doubt this is one of the best hotels in the area and a great venue to host weddings with enough parking and ample space in the hotel. There is a very good spread and staff is friendly. When coming to the hotel though, care should be taken with the rail cross roads crossing.

I don't know how there could be any negative views. This hotel is beautiful! There is beauty in every place you look, the staff are so friendly and greet you every time they see you and couldn't do more for you. My sister had a beautiful wedding there and I can not wait to go back. The food was amazing...

We stayed at this hotel for my birthday in Jan and it's the perfect place to relax with delicious food. What spoilt it for us was speaking to the beach boys that sit in a big tree just on the beach right outside the hotel fence. We booked a tour and got TOTALLY ripped off!! DRUNK DRIVER!!! And promised 3...

We were a little concerned when we read previous reviews but we can only speak as we found. On arrival we were given the opportunity to upgrade to a club suite in the new wing at a reduced rate, when we saw the lovely space we decided it would be worth the extra. We enjoyed the gym and the pool...
