As always the food was fantastic . I love the fact that you can dine right on the beach if the weather is good. Great service again … we will be back

As hotel guests we had a breakfast there - it was the worst of the three hotels we stayed at. Cereal was not served packed as elsewhere but from glass containers which meant it wasn't as fresh and crispy as it should be. The spreads were served in the same manner, not very appealing.

Sunday night BBQ really disappointed. At $35 pp there were a few salads, garlic bread and four types of meat (not from a BBQ!); sausage, fish, chicken (and beef I think). Would have loved a warm side such as potato or rice... Desserts were pretty good, especially truffle cake.

On another dining occasion I had an entree (felt mains were overpriced) and it was quite good too. Milkshakes were nice too.

My meal was overcooked and the meat tough and far to many herbs were used. My husbands was cooked ok but there was very little flavour to the mushroom sauce. We would not go back or recommend this place to dine.

Really really nice setting, really nice cocktails and reasonable food which was good value. String band kept us entertained and the staff went out of their way to ensure everyone had a good night
