          Having stayed at Ocean Bay 4 times now I am looking forward to coming again in February 2018 - it's a beautiful hotel and the staff are so friendly! My partner has recently turned vegan, though, and I'm concerned he'll have nothing to eat but rice. He's happy to eat a vegetarian diet for the week, can anyone tell me if there are any vegetarian options in the hotel and the restaurants in the area please. Thanks ever so much!
