    Room clean and tidy, provided what was offered . ‘Running’ toilet wasn’t conducive to sleep on the first night.

  • 4.0.Fair

    The bedside tables and lamps were dusty. Corner of microwave door broken which did not instill confidence to use it. Site show pool on site, which was dirty and unkempt - definitely wouldn't swim in it. For $210 per night, I would expect far better.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Located right across the beach was beautiful, having our own car park was a bonus as well not worrying about what time we returned to the hotel. They were happy to allow us to check in late by leaving the key under the mat which was we were so grateful due to us coming from 5 hours we didn't stress rushing to get their. :) 10 stars
