Drinks on the bar overlooking the bay followed by a delightful dinner in the restaurant. A nautical scene. Starters and main courses were excellent. Fine choice of wine. Service was attentive and friendly.

Breakfast was good. Fresh squeezed orange juice would have been very nice. The service was okay, but they were understaffed. People waited to be seated when there were empty tables. Service was a bit slow. Very nice room. Staff very pleasant.
