My partner and I stayed 2 nights at the end of May with our black lab. Unlike the previous review I felt it was an excellent dog friendly hotel. Many hotels claim to be but this really was and we did not find it a problem that dogs were not permitted in the Brasserie as the main formal restaurant in the hotel. On our first evening we ate in the Brasserie and the food was of excellent quality, with great service to match. Breakfast was also superb with a huge selection available.
The location of the hotel is incredible with beautiful views and sunsets. These can be really appreciated from the deck area adjoining the Living Space, which incidentally is fully dog friendly and serves lovely food. On every occasion we went into the Living Space the staff were great with our dog and always offered a bowl of water. This area has a lovely contemporary and light style.
The new pool is fantastic, the area is lovely and warm and even when not swimming it is a great area to relax in and appreciate the views of the beach. The facilities adjoining this area were also well thought out.
We stayed in a double room on the ground floor of the Ocean Wing. The room was tastefully decorated with everything you would expect and a huge bed! Good bathroom, the only comment I would make is that the shower was not very powerful.
Overall the hotel has a great 'laid back' atmosphere, helpful staff and we would definitely return.
