Stayed here for a week on a work trip. Buffet breakfast and gym were good. The hotel is right by Oysterbay so it's easy to walk to restaurants and shopping. There's a large pool with plenty of lounge chairs and palm trees. There's also a nice view of the bay and you can also take a stroll down the walkway...

Fantastic location. Big, airy and very comfortable room (aircon a bit noisy) - a cracking shower always welcome after a hot summer's day. The staff and managers very helpful and friendly. Pool area and views are gorgeous.
