Fabulous
We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay! First off, the staff were amazing; nothing was a problem for them, they're so friendly, helpful...just beautiful people. The open air restaurant is cool, food is amazing and great price. Love the bar, great range of drinks. Pool is good. Our room was a bit small but who needs space when all the adventures are outside! Quick walk to town. Great location. No road noise. I’ll be back 100%

My stay is for business
I enjoy staying with the team at Moorings. Very friendly staff, always willing to help and always up for a chat. The rooms are not huge, but always kept clean. Great spot by the water and not too far to town, pleasant walk along the water front.

Great service !
Rooms are ery clean with a very pleasant service both for the room and at the restaurant. Nice bed and comfortable room (ocean view). Restaurant not gastronomic but good value for money. I have really appreciated that leaving at 4 PM, the manager allowed me to take a shower before my flight. They provide me with a clean room at no cost for the shower and thank to it I was really confortable for the flight. This is really a great service, very customer oriented.
