We stayed 2 nights and were very lucky with the weather as we lounged on the dock! Wow a terrific experience to be swimming in October.
We had a simple room but delightful and had a little patio which faced the mountains and that was fine with us. We booked on line and were able to get a great price. Breakfast was typical but done with style. We did not eat at the restaurant but had a few drinks on the patio. We enjoyed many meals at local restaurants. We walked everywhere but, one night we decided to take a taxi back to the hotel and it cost 20 euro for less than a mile.
The fellas at reception were very friendly and helpful.
My one tiny issue was the hotel turned off the AC at 2 am? I would've opened the door but we were next to this huge roof top which I didn't think was that secure. I asked the next morning and was told that's what they do. "It's not hot anymore" I reminded him that I was so the AC was kept on until morning.
The hotel is quite lovely and location is breathtaking.
