    This was the perfect setting for the lovely outdoor wedding. Everything close at hand and we could stay onsite. Great location for visiting region. The local beach and cafe were divine, and near by towns and marina were very pretty.More

    Fantastic place to unwind with all the facilities. We stay here every time we are in the area. Its central to all the attractions, close to the airport but feels like your miles from everywhere. Friendly staff.
