Beautiful place to stay

Location: Plenty of restaurants nearby. Beach across the road with fantastic walkway along. I-site directly across the road.
Loved our night at The Dome. Room was large with air conditioning and windows that opened. Doubled glazed windows which blocked out any noise from people below. Linen, amenities, glassware, surroundings were all top quality. Especially loved the Casa Lavenda products sourced locally. A free bottle of bubbles chilling in the fridge is a fantastic touch. Plunge pool and spa area great for relaxing out on the lounge. Plenty of extras like cutlery, plates, glasses if needed in the kitchen to use. Lady that showed us in was lovely and informative. Only downside is you need a bit more information before you arrive as to where you go with your vehicle and up to room but not much of an issue really. A touch of luxury for a special night away.
