Positive Reviews

View, view, view

It may be location, location, location when you are looking for real estate, but when it comes to picking a resort for a vacation by the sea, it's all about view, view, view. The Osborne does not disappoint.

Take Time to Smell the Roses

Vacations are all about taking time to slow down and enjoy your surroundings. At The Osborne, the lovely gardens will give you the perfect place to relax and unwind…and smell the roses too!

Inland is New

A renovation program is under way the hotel. To date, the inland rooms have been refurbished. If a newly renovated room is more important than a sea view, make sure you ask for an inland room as the sea view rooms have not yet been refurbished.

Negative Reviews

Turn up the Heat

The heated indoor swimming pool will leave you feeling chilled after even a quick dip.

Dated Decor

While the inland facing rooms have been renovated, the restaurant, corridors and sea view rooms are dated and tired. The on-going renovation program may create some inconveniences.

Come One Come All

In addition to hosting hotel guests, timeshare owners and residents from the local area use the parking lot and the health club facilities. During peak periods, be prepared for some congestion.
