The hotel is situated in excellent location, overlooking the sea. The sprawling garden is unmatched. Staff are friendly. Food is OK. Room is pretty decent and gives you very great value for...

The location and outside space of the hotel cannot be faulted but I was expecting a bit more from the buidling. The building looks a bit worn as did the room and bathroom. The AC worked well which was a bonus.
