Positive Reviews

Outstanding waterfront views

Almost every reviewer mentions the beautiful views offered from the hotel. Most say the view from their room and private balcony was exceptional, while others comment on the vista from the pool and barbecue area.

Excellent location walkable to town

The historic town center is approximately five minutes' walk from the hotel. Most guests found it a convenient distance. According to reviewers, there are a number of restaurants within easy walking distance as well.

Hotel amenities

Guests tend to focus on the hotel location and amenities as the main highlights of this establishment. The pool is said to be refreshing while the jet spa is hot and relaxing. Guests enjoyed the barbecue area, which they were able to use to prepare their own meals.

Negative Reviews

Outdated and rundown

Several guests say that while their suite was clean and well-appointed, they found the furnishings and fittings to be a little out of date. There are comments about different maintenance issues and broken items, but overall these opinion are rare - most guests are very positive about the resort.

Unusual check in procedure

A number of reviewers found the check-in procedure for this resort to be a little unorthodox, though it was not a problem per se. According to reports, suites here are privately owned and therefore, each has its own key kept in the dedicated key room. There was rarely a person at reception but the process of calling the number indicated and locating the key is usually smooth.

Few staff members and no housekeeping

This resort is designed as a budget, self-contained option where costs are kept low by employing a limited number of staff and keeping housekeeping to a minimum. Guests were mostly fine with this aspect but warn it is not a luxury establishment.
