The road needs some help and repairs. If you are not staying at the resort, parking is outside and you walk in. Very short walk. Interesting bar with a boat making up the main feature. Good sea views from the restaurant. We enjoy a really good meal at reasonable prices. I imagine that in full season it would be very... More

Sit and have drinks at the very out of the ordenary bar or right on the beach with a kilometers-wide view of the ocean. Cold drinks and an extensive menu with friendly service. Food is average but good enough given the setitng. You can spend time there for a nice lunch, pleasant sundowner drinks experience or a relaxing supper.

Took the family for lunch and had a good experience overall. Food seemed pricey for what it is but the location and kids facilities were great. Kids played on the trampolines and beach while we had some drinks. The waitress was friendly and the manager also stopped by just as we got the food to check on things. Note that... More

Poor experience. Staff have bad attitudes. Over billed which I complained for an item that was charged that we never ordered nor had. The waitress then argued and asked if we are sure we didn't have the item on the bill to our amazement. She obviously couldn't keep tabs on all her tables and someone had to pay for her... More

A great pub and restaurant right on the beach where you can watch the kids play on the trampolines and beach or swim in the various size swimming pools. A great place for sundowners or a romantic dinner especially on a Saturday night when they have a bonfire. They also serve a perfect Christmas lunch.

Well managed and novel bar. Food is good and well priced. Staff attentive. Well worth a visit especially with grandkids! Pool and kids playground means parents can chill. Their log cabins set on the quiet beach south of the park are superb.
