Lunch @ Ventana Grand Cafe
Tracy from bloggerbythesea.com reviews the Ventana Restaurant. 'What really made the meal – other than the very memorable food, of course – was the setting. The sea view, yes; but not only that. The staff were helpful while not being over-attentive and there was a genuinely happy, relaxed vibe about the place. I don’t think it will be another six years before I return to Ventana; there’s other dishes on the menu that I intend to try long before that. Not to mention a very tempting cocktail list'(bloggerbythesea.com).
Beach Hotels: Cumberland Hotel by Life Beyond Borders Blog
Rebecca Hall from 'Life Beyond Borders' wrote about her stay at the Cumberland 'I recently had the pleasure of experiencing the seaside town of Bournemouth in the UK and had a look at Things to do in Bournemouth. When choosing a place to stay in this south coast town, it made sense to me to be located by the sea, a short walk from the beach and along the cliffs. Therefore the Cumberland Hotel, Bournemouth was the perfect choice.'
