We found Gordons Bay Lodge to be ideally positioned for the beach and local restaurants. Hands-on management ensures that the service is very friendly and attentive, the breakfasts first class and the rooms are beautifully clean and well-equipped. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I arrived on a hot day and it was refreshing how I was welcomed. The staff was very friendly and accommodating with my requests. I spent my birthday and they made me feel very special indeed.
