My son and I stopped for a quick lunch at this hotel. The menu was so good that we ended up ordering a full meal. The sashimi dish we ordered was very good and so was the rest of the food. The Prawns and the soup. Good attentive staff.

The Jetwing Lighthouse is a beautiful hotel right on the water. There is no beach access and there are many rocks. There is a big drop off to the ocean and swimming can be dangerous. Note the wonderful staircase going up into reception. All rooms have patios or balconies with chairs, tables, and a lounge. There is free WiFi but...

Stayed here for two nights but I would have stayed longer time permitting. We stayed in a very nice room overlooking the pool. The breakfast and dinner buffets are both excellent and you can be seated outside overlooking the ocean. Only drawback is that ocean swimming is prohibited due to rocks and strong currents. On the flip side the pool...

We picked a room that faced the ocean and this was absolutely mind-blowing. The only thing that put us off is non-attention to details such as strands of hair of the previous traveller on a chair in our room. The cleanliness otherwise is very good. The food is wonderful and the spread amazing and the staff warm and helpful!
