Excellent location and views right on water
Posted Feb 12, 2016
First, the view from my hotel room was amazing - overlooking the ocean and bay of islands. The room itself was very comfy and pretty, with an excellent shower as well. The restaurant at the hotel is fabulous - I definitely recommend it. The dishes are very good. I didn't get a chance to try the spa, but I wish I had been able to. The location is about a 10 minute walk (up and down a hill, but with a good sidewalk) to get to the main area and wharf. The hotel staff was very nice, but they were often not at the desk, which was a little inconvenient. I was in a rush to check out, and they had left a sign up at reception saying "back in 5 minutes". Not useful when you are in a rush to leave. The other negative would be that you have to cross a road to get to the path/beach, and that road is a bit busy and annoying to cross, but not too bad overall. There should be better pedestrian crossings available, but that's a city problem, not a hotel problem.
