We stayed for 3 nights in this hotel. Check-in was very quick. The staff is warm hearted and made us feel very welcome. The hotel is clean, our room was spacious. Breakfast was various and you could eat in- or outside. Nice pool and gym. Free secured parking. Shopping mall and restaurants on walking distance.

We stayed here for one night, while travelling. The hotel was clean and staff were all friendly and helpful. There were five of us in the room. It was spacious: we didn't feel squashed. We had a nice meal in the evening and complimentary breakfast in the morning. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here with family including two teenagers. We definitely appreciated having two nice tvs as well as a computer desk and working internet! The location is near grocery stores and beaches. It is actually the quieter side of town, which was much appreciated! We spent afternoons enjoying the pool and hot tub after mornings at the Point watching the surfers!...

Relaxing and wonderful invigorating stay. Loved the atmosphere and ambiance of the hotel. These days you just never know what you're going to get when it comes to hotel accommodations. The establishments look great over the internet, but when you get there you feel so disappointed. Not here! Here you get what you pay for, it was simply wonderful!!
