We stayed at this hotel for three nights. Room was very good and cleaned on a daily basis. Food were of a very high standard and breakfast fantastic. The pool area was kept cleaned at all times and the pool is also heated up to a minimum of 24 digrees. We enjoyed our stay and will come back again.

Staff were very friendly and helpful, rooms were neat and clean with amazing views over the golf course. We enjoyed the buffet food which was beautifully cooked and very tasty., with a large variety. Played golf on a superb 18 hole course, and a stunning hike through a bush path down to breathtaking views on stunning beaches. Would highly recommend...

Our dental association had a weekend Congress at the "Fish". I was a bit worried about the venue as the hotel only has a three star rating. The staff and hotel proved me wrong. From arrival at the gate everyone was genuinely friendly and helpful. The food was good. The conference venue worked and our room was great. The setting...
