Certificate of Excellence
Family run, small, select and peaceful, yet only steps away from excellent restaurants, bars and boutiques.All rooms are beachfront and the view of the sea and outlying islands is spectacular. Many guests extend their stay, recommend us to others or return themselves, often to meet other guests who have now become friends. Its like coming home, they say. Lots of little touches to make you feel welcome including free pick-up and free internet.

The staff bent over backwards to help in setting up day trips, finding restaurants and spas to go to, very helpful. I really enjoyed stating at the Waterfront. Great location, many good restaurants and things to do.
