    We had an enjoyable 3 night stay with great view of the water and surroundings. The room was clean, the shower good and the bed comfortable. The hotel is within walking distance of clubs, beach and shops.

    Always enjoy coming back. Great position with lovely views. Well appointed, clean and welcoming with comfortable king size beds. The staff are always helpful and obliging. A short stroll into town for shopping and the extra benefit of laundry facilities is a plus.

    We love staying at the Observatory. The location is fantastic, the rooms are lovely as well as the view and mostly we love the indoor pool, spa and sauna. We can't wait to go again next year for our next family holiday.
