We loved this property every house is different and has a unique character, its like going back in time to the 60s and it is right on the beach, the staff were extremely friendly and made the stay so enjoyable. I would go there again tomorrow, such a shame its closing

We have just come back from another relaxing and enjoyable stay at Settlers Beach. We have been staying at Settlers since the mid 80's with our family and now the grandchildren are accompanying us too. Yes, the property is tired and needs investment but the relaxing environment is second to none. All the staff are very helpful, smiley and do... More

Went to Spagos at Settlers Beach in early March 2014 (very enjoyable, superb setting, food good {Pizza) and service friendly if sometimes a little disorganised). While we were there we were told that both the hotel and this version of Spargo's were closing and to be demolished. Understand the site is being developed by the owners of the Sandpiper Inn,...

Do not be taken in by the photographs and write up. The most disappointing place I have stayed in 20 years. Tired and much in need of updating so really over priced for what it is. No air conditioning in the downstairs living room after we returned from the beach to cool down. Not even a vacuum cleaner available to... More

I stayed at the Settlers hotel for 2 nights attending the Holders Festival. The location and setting we're great with the beach right on our doorstep. The grounds were well kept and the staff friendly. The rooms are dated and I understand that the villas are going to be refurbished so when this is done it will be a fab... More

We stayed here in January 2013 for one night as we had to check out of Art Studios where we had been staying . Settlers beach is next door to the Sandpiper and Art Studios so we knew the area well, size of beach, Spago,s restaurant and the facilities around the area. Our villa was lovely, well equipped and appointed,... More

This ideal mini estate of 22villas set in 4acres right on the beach is being knocked down after this season to make way for a bigger delevopment. The staff are super, but the minor maintenance is showing signs of need. You can walk to local shops including very upmarket ones as well as more general ones. Lots of restaurants nearby,... More
