Having seen some amazing views all around the world, this has to be the best.
The hotel is nothing that you would expect to find overlooking the sea. It would be more appropriate next to the Royal Crescent in Bath - it is that type of building.
Appearances in this case are everything. The sun, sea and view are fantastic. Add to this the feeling of being in the Mediterranean, eating outdoors on a large sun terrace where the tables are intermittently spaced so you can have your own conversation without listening to everyone else, and being overheard by all and sundry.
The food was great - inexpensive, not cheap. The staff friendly and attentive, but discreet.
The restaurant in the evening was as equally impressive - busy, but comfortable. The staff are obviously accustomed to dealing with large numbers of diners. I couldn't fault their friendliness, efficiency and professionalism.
Our room, with a balcony and overlooking the sea was spotlessly clean and comfortably furnished. The upgrade to a suite with a balcony was definitely value for money - I would have paid far more abroad, without the style and comfort I experienced here.
Why go abroad when you have such a delightful hotel here.
Thank you to all the staff for making our stay so welcome and enjoyable - we will be back soon.
