This was a stay using credits from a previously cancelled trip due to covid. The stay was after a 3 day dive trip and included a full day white water rafting trip. The staff were very helpful at check in, although extra procedures in place due to covid. The room was great, with ocean views. The hotel is in a great location. The bed was comfortable, the room spacious enough to unpack all my junk between adventures, and clean. My only criticism is that the included wifi only allowed for one device, and the wifi had to be reset every 2 hours.

Great location, close to the esplanade, cafes, restaurants, shops and art galleries. The esplanade board walk is literally across the road. The staff were helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

Had a 2 bedroom apartment. Beautiful view. Beautifully furnished. Can’t fault the staff, the location, or anything. I will mention that while we were there it was quite windy so there was a lot of noise from the halyards on the yachts slapping the masts in the breeze. But you only heard it when you were outside. With everything closed up - it was whisper quiet.

For a number of reasons, we checked out early but Leah (the Manager) helped us receive a refund from a third party. We had a room with a balcony that had a great view and we enjoyed our stay. The staff are very friendly and helpful and we appreciated Leah's assistance. The location of the hotel is excellent. We had a hotel room and although it was nice enough, there was no room for luggage so we had to improvise. We would stay here again but only for a few days at a time.
