Booked to stay here over xmas 2009 and it was brilliant. We stayed in the beach front room - which was a realy good size and had some great facilities. The one negative point was that the shower was not that hot, only slightly warmish at best going on cold some days - but this wasn't a massive problem.
The breakfasts that was included was nice too.
The dive shop - dive and relax - is the best dive operator I've ever used - so if you're into diving using them.
The bar serves popcorn with cocktails in the evening - amazing!! The barman happily made a cocktail for us that wasn't on the menu and it tasted great too !!
The massages were cheap (about a fiver) and really varied in quality depending on who did it. On two of the three occassions I had one I had a amazing person doing the massage, on the other occassion it was not so good.
It is just a quick walk up the beach to other restuarants and bars also.
If you stay here - go and eat the pad thai at Trai Trys - go up to the road, turn left, walk for about five minutes, walk past the Irish Embassy, and it is the last place on the left handside of the road. The places looks a little odd - but the pad thai was the best I have ever had anywhere and cost £1.50. Also go for drinks in Jackaroo's - it is just next to the Irish Embassy.
