We have just had a night out there with meal and breakfast. Room with a view was fantastic. Can only say it was made even better by the staff and wait staff last night - a special thanks to Averille and Bailey - you were both awesome. Thanks so much for your service and we will be back.

Very pleasant location overlooking the marina and central for exploring the surrounding areas. Nice clean room and comfortable bed. Good choice evening meals but a wee bit pricey. Good value breakfast. Will stay again

No "welcome" on arrival. We were greeted with "here's your key" and that's it. The next morning I was greeted with a sigh and "there's the continental breakfast". No offer of anything else. Poor options for continental breakfast. Was made to feel like I was an annoyance. There was never anyone at reception and no way to know how to... More

Stayed 3 times at Oceans now and each time for some local diving. The staff are fun, friendly and go out of their way to cater for your individual needs. The rooms are very comfortable and have beautiful views. The restaurant menu has good variety and the meals are lovely.

Stayed here for a weekend while doing a dive course. Rooms were large and well heated. Breakfast was cheap and plentiful, decent meal for dinner and wine not too expensive. Only sight grumbles were that the pillows were those flat ones where one is too low and two is too many. Also the bathroom supplies are not replaced, so for... More

While the room facilities are modern and clean, the lack of air-conditioning made for a stifling sleepless night, even during rainy April autumn weather. However the thing that really spoilt our stay was the appalling rudeness and arrogance of one of the staff. After our early evening arrival we sat down with two other couples for a very pleasant dinner... More
