My friend and I have just returned from a lovely girly weekend and have to say we had a fabulous time, despite the renovations, which sadly were all completed the day after we left!!
We arrived and were told our room wasn't ready, we went to the beach restaurant and had a light late lunch,we then returned to reception and were taken by golf buggy to our suite, which was spacious,comfortable,with a lovely big terrace and large bathroom.
We ate that night in serafina the italian restaurant, we were greeted by the polished,charming front of house team and made to feel special and extremely welcome.
The food was absolutely delicious,particularly my wild boar pasta which was exceptional,we chose a bottle of Chablis premier cru which at under €50 was a bargain, the atmosphere was lively and fun,with the slickest service,a great first night!!
The next day we went to the pool by the beach,we managed to get sunbeds even though it was extremely busy,due to half term and only one of the three hotel pools open because of the renovations,down side the pool was full of children with inflatables,also slightly under staffed that day.
We also ate at the sea grill which is so beautifully decorated,a glorious light open space comfortably furnished.
We had cocktails at the bar and were given menus to peruse whilst waiting for our table,again charming service,so attentive.
We both had lobster & crab salad to start, which was very good,my friend had tandoori monkfish and I had seared tuna which was sublime.
We had coffees and were given a stand full of gorgeous petit fours a perfect ending to a meal,although I have to an expensive one,especially compared to serafina.
Each morning we had breakfast brought to our room to enjoy on the terrace,the room service was swift and excellent quality.
The morning of our departure I called reception to ask for a late checkout as we wanted to make the most of our last day,no problem we were told we could checkout at 2pm!
To sum up,the hotel is so pretty all low rise white apartments set in beautiful,fragrant botanical gardens,wonderful staff and seriously good food.
The only negatives were the pools being closed at the time of our visit and the shower which isn't very powerful.
That said I will definitely return, its a lovely place.
