We had a third floor room with a sea view across the bay. Good comfortable bed. Everything was spotlessly clean. Well equipped bathroom. One grumble - the rail in hanging cupboard in the bedroom was so high up it was difficult to reach even for quite tall people like us. The wifi was slow. The hotel staff were all approachable...

This hotel feels a little long in the tooth but it is well located and the staff is helpful and friendly.

Perfect for taking in the afternoon sun.

Chose this hotel as it said 5 star with a spa. Although the location for views was stunning, we felt disappointed with the hotel especially the spa. Our idea of a spa is a place to relax, but this was like a public swimming baths. Very small so crowded at most times we tried to use it. We were left...
