Beautiful Restaurant as be say Cliff is actually on the cliff of the see. The see looks beautiful while you drink your coffee. You need to be here before its dark as you don't want to regret not seeing the beautiful see.

I found it by far (in regards to most hotels visited) the PERFECT hotel to host any occasion i.e. brunch, conference/ business meetings etc. The service is great - the waiters are mindful of every request made and make it possible to have you served and comfortable. The rooms are ok with a view of the ocean. My personal favorite...

Fairly this is not a 5 star Hotel, seems like its glory was left behind. Rooms have strange smell, AC too loud this put me off and had no excitement on checking out other hotel facilities which might be top notch. Breakfast disorganized and limited options. Staff wonderful and friendly. Sea view and gardens breath taking and beautiful. Very limited...

Rooms were nice and comfortable some of which have a lovely sea view theres a couple of bars and restaurants with a casino for those that like that sort of thing. Overall a nice place to stay but a bit on the pricey side.

It is usually windy because of its location, the pool is very small for its star and standards. The Casino was OK. The room was well decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was OK, but the meals for dinner did not worth what we paid.

This review is for the Cafe and not hotel. Lovely ocean front cafe with a great view (see pix). The food was good, especially the pizza, and service was efficient and price was reasonable for the quality. We had a quiet lunch although I am told in the evenings the bar is packed and lively.

I started to stay here out of sheer frustration with the usual suspects in DAR. It is a bit out of the way, unless you are stuck over the weekend and then it is slap bang in the middle of everything as DAR central dies then. The quality of service is consistent and the two restaurants are really good, depending...
