Truly magical, the best place ever
Wow just wow. I wish there was a rating higher than 10. Ocean watch is beautiful and perfect in every single way. It is 5 star in comfort, beauty, views and service. Honestly the nicest place we have ever stayed. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Nice guest house
We stayed here for 2 nights. The rooms are nice. We had the rose room which had everything we needed. The staff are friendly and there was plenty of parking. It's only 5-10 minutes walk to all of the local amenities. The communal areas are wonderful and the views are fantastic.
