There are several lovely restaurants just around the...

Great hotel, basic but clean amenities. Nice breakfast by the pool. Very accommodating staff that went out of their way to help us when our bags from the airline went missing. Can hire cars direct from reception and it's not too far from town. Highly recommend!
