Guest reviews for The Beach Hotel

Everyone (1)
5 out of 5

Very comfortable hotel in a good position.

Pros: Helpful and friendly staff.
Cons: Nothing for me.
Location: Across the road from the beach and only 10 minutes from the airport, which was the main reason for our choosing to stay there.
My wife and I only stayed one night be were very impressed with the hotel and, particularly, by the staff who were all extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was better than we had expected and was very large and well furnished. We had dinner at the Ginger restaurant which was of a good standard, as was breakfast.
