Thoroughly enjoyed the non-pretentious vibe. We really felt we could relax. Great meal at The restaurant with capable staff ably led by Brid. Well done.

Excellent location right by the sea, staff helpful especially at the reception (nothing was trouble for them). We loved hot tub on the balcony and watching turtles from the room. On the other hand let down was cleanliness of the room and inconsistent quality of dinner in Clupper Restaurants eg still frozen arancini inside needles to say whole meal was sent back. In our experience dinner was high quality if they didn’t have any other function on and they were not busy. We also paid for Christmas lunch at $155 per adult and $42 per child which was the biggest let down in quality of meal as well as quality of service.

Location is nothing short of spectacular. Rooms could do with an update but its easy to overlook that because of the great location, restaurant, pool area, and proximity to other amenities. We’ll be back for sure.
