The rooms in the new building are fabulous and very clean. You must like rock-hard beds. They are 1.80 m. wide though. Rooms with excellent sea views and one/two floors down from the top floor with infinity plunge pool and bar ( free cocktail drinks), marvelous for reading and resting. The Hotel has a restaurant with unfortunately one menu for... More

This hotel had the most wonderful roof top pool that looks out to the ocean. The bar there serves excellent cocktails and G&Ts. It's the perfect place for watching the sunset each night. The other pool has loads of sun loungers and day beds, which allows you to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The restaurant has a varied menu... More

Experience at the front desk on arrival has such a big influence on your stay. The gentleman at the front desk was rude and very unhelpful (at each encounter with him unfortunately). The room was good for a family room with a nice view, the pool was clean and fun for the kids. The cafe staff were accommodating serving nice... More

It is a very calm beautiful place. The views and pools are great. The open bar is a great treat. I would recommend it fir sure. The simplicity , nice unpretentious decoration and friendly people make it worth it. The location is great.

I found the hotel shabby & very expensive for what it is! I paid €160 for 1 night for a superior double with sea view so was disappointed with my standard small basic room overlooking the carpark! It should be advertised as a b&b/hostal, in which case it would be fine! But in my opinion, this is defo NOT a... More

Stayed here for one night on a dinner bed and breakfast basis. Really nice hotel with very well maintained rooms and gardens. Dinner was great in their restaurant.....maybe could have done with a bit of background music as there were only a few other tables eating. Lovely terrace for a g and t before dinner and a brandy afterwards.
