Great place for a couple to get away! Quiet, clean and romantic staff was professional and responsive and very pleasant! Beach access is easy and the free fire pits are a huge touch. We love it here and will continue to come back. This was our 3rd time so far.

The resort staff was absolutely amazing. From courtesy & service it was top notch. We Loved the opportunity to stay at the resort for our annual marriage get away. We felt misled on a few advertising items between the website we booked on & what the resort actually offered.

I loved this hotel, only stayed 1 night but could have quite happily stayed much longer (weather was rubbish). We had a Junior Suite Oceanfront. Our view was a bit blocked by some sand dunes but the beach is right in front of you. They have a bonfire on the beach every evening
