We recently stayed at this hotel for three nights in the Elegant Suite upstairs. The suite is very well decorated and together with the lounge/dining area, has beautiful furnishings. The included drinks and minibar have a good selection, and breakfasts are adequate. Staff were always very welcoming and helpful. The downside of this property is the guest parking area which...

What an incredible little place! Sublime view of the ocean, the distant mountains and surfbreak.Walk out right onto the beautiful beach. We stayed in one of the down-stairs rooms which has the benefit of walking out onto the garden (also nice view) and easy access to the pool. Clean feel throughout. Lovely breakfast. I definitely recommend having the Eggs Benedict...

My wife and I arrived early afternoon. The room was already setup, neat and tidy. Very spacious bathroom, massive bed with breathtaking views. Literally a stone throw away from longbeach...and was the "standard" room! The fridge was restocked frequently. There was a problem with our DVD player, but within 2minutes it was sorted out. The breakfast the next day was...

We stayed 1 night and we wished it was more!! Already planning our return trip to stay for 3 nights. Everything was wonderful - the room was large, clean and very well equipped, the view incredible, breakfast delicious and range of drinks included in the price extremely generous. We loved it - thank you.
