Mrs. Patricia Pitt

"Well set up hotel. Service rather slow at times. Not enough sunshades....only 3 in shade all day. "

"Would have liked to have put excellent here but the restaurant let it down slightly as the staff were not very attentive. The location is excellent. We had an deluxe room and it was superb but all the rooms looked very nice. Reception staff very good."
Mr. Paul Roberts
"The only criticism would be the breakfast service, whilst always friendly and well-intentioned was, at times, haphazard eg coffee before juice, orders not right. But we always got there in the end. Beautiful grounds. "
Mrs. Jenni Portman - Mr Bryan Portman
"A tired hotel with scruffy edges. Staff were on the whole miserable and unfriendly. On arrival we were offered substandard rooms due to one of the rooms having no AC. We tussled for a while and viewed several rooms and settled on two that were appropriate, clean and smart and as per our travel details. The food was disappointing so we ate out locally. Would not recommend. "
Mr. Raymond Avery
"Well run hotel, comfortable, clean rooms. Friendly, helpful staff. When rain was forecast, and boy did it rain that evening, cleaning staff had left an umbrella in our room. Nice touch. The grounds are beautiful and overlook the beach and Pacific ocean. Very good restaurant for breakfast, midday snack and evening meal alike. Beautiful beaches and scenery in the local area and short walk to several local restaurants open in the evenings."
