Nice hotel with friendly service. The restaurant did have a very limited menu for lunch or dinner. To insure the availability of your meal choices, you had to make a reservation and choose your appetizer, entree and desert, no later than 11:00 a.m. that morning. If you didn't, you choices might not be available.

Not a bad spot
This place is fine if you’re looking for some average accommodation. Staff were pleasant and the view is great. Right near the date line and ferry, however a fair drive to the fall etc.

Would happily go back
Overall the place is very nice and fairly clean. We had a couple of issues but the staff are exceptionally friendly and sorted out our issues quite quickly. The main thing that wasn't great was the blinds aren't black out at all and at night if the room lights are on inside you can see straight through them from outside/ anyone walking along the beach.

Wonderful place with friendly and attentive staff. Everyone there knew my name and i felt very at home! Good food, clean rooms, great dive trips, i would happily recommend this place to friends and would return in a heart beat! It was hard to leave! Only down side was paid wifi that was pretty spotty, but that is an issue everywhere on the island i guess.
