We were in room #9 which was a family room with a double/single bed clean and fresh sheet looking out onto the main road. our friends stayed above us room #12 in same type of room they also looked out to the front main rd but as they were higher up they had a bit of a sea view.
Our room had two comfy chairs and two regular chairs, a coffee table, wardrobe and two bedside cabinets. A Mini fridge and coffee/tea/sugar and a kettle. Television and a FAN great for the hot weather stay. Bathroom had a Rain shower which was powerful and knocked off the sand, which we were very grateful of. Towels were provided however we did have to ask for an extra bath towel since there were three in our room. They made sure was in our room for the next day, so I feel they actually listen too the customer and act upon it..Fantastic customer service. Ive stayed in 5* hotels that forget and you have to keep asking.

Breakfast was plentiful and you have the option of scrambled, fried or poached eggs..and buffet style beans, stewed tomatoes, Hash browns, Bacon, Sausage. also plenty different cereal options and white or wheat toast is offered as well as Tea coffee, apple or orange juice. I could not fault the food AT ALL. The tables were set really wonderful with linen table cloths. The bar area was pretty and relaxing our children 7yr ad 10yrs played on the computer down in the bar. We ate a cooked meal at 8:30pm nothing was too much for this hotel..we were very impressed.
Bertie and his family were very welcoming and nothing was too
much trouble, lovely people.

We would have no hesitation to book again if we are in the area. However we are going to stay in the apartment as we visited it and would have worked brilliant for us. See you next year Bertie, Elaine Dave Harris. and Gail and Martin Strickland. Room Tip: #12 is a Family room with a little bit of sea view room..
