The views, the service, the staff, the comfort - everything you could ask for in a prime location. Five minutes walk from an oceanfront setting to shops, restaurants, takeaways and a supermarket. How could you not love that? Overnights to extended stays at extremely reasonable prices, with every guest treated like a friend.
