Beautiful location, had excellent during our stay there. Excellent Golf Course, first nine has a number of hidden shots which could do with more location pointers so one knows where to aim, 4th Hole in particular. Stayed in Lodge, room was average, not well laid out, heat pump should be more centrally placed. Bathroom is not well appointed, expect to...

Nice views over golf and bay. Very clean. Restaurant with spectacular views and good food and service. However ageing decor here as well. Open kitchen has good chefs...

We had booked and paid for this resort 5 months ago, and were a little disappointed on arrival to find ourselves in a dark corner room with no view of the beautiful surroundings and right on the pathway from reception to the bar / restaurant. The duty manager explained that the hotel was full and this was the only room...
