Good location dated rooms

Pros: Private beach and restaurant rooms n the beach.
Cons: Bathrooms and general maintenance lacks management control to ensure the efficient running of the hotel.
Location: Near the beach
Good location, but maintenance of the rooms is an issue dirty tired bathrooms and balcony doors needed attention. The fish cove restaurant was very good along with the private beach. Very busy hotel so sunbeds at the pool and beach used up very soon. Too many guests for the amenities to cope. The owners seem greedy tour groups are put first!
