Good 7.0 From 15 reviews

Very Good 8.0
It was a lovely place
A. M, gb3 night trip
Very Good 8.0
Great place, only complaint is food and drink are a bit more expensive than they need to be - good food though.
ie9 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Expensive with poor food choices but great views
Well organised pick up from Ferry and local staff very friendly. Ambiance is great and views spectacular. Clean big pool. Unfortunately Jetty closed when we were there throughout stay and food/beverage choices extremely limited, poor quality and very expensive. Not much to do but to lounge around. The rudimentary butterfly park and forest nearby will keep you entertained a few hours while Stonetown/main city approx. 1 hrs drive away has much more to offer but requires a day-trip that the hotel will happily organize against a fee.
