Booked into this hotel for a short getaway planning to only spend one night, as it is only 130 kms from our home in Switzerland. On arrival we were given a very friendly greeting and shown around by a young man with perfect English language skills. First impressions were so good - beautiful garden setting, vine covered outdoor dining areas, cool green pool garden with inviting turquoise outdoor pool, (beautiful indoor pool area, which we did not use). Liked what we saw, so we booked another day. We are glad we did, because the food was excellent, and good value with 'half board'. Simple lunch pasta dish for 8 Euros was exquisite, and complimentary afternoon cake buffet was lovely. First room we were allocated (although premium in layout and design had a 'silly little TV only fit for use as a desktop computer monitor' - not for viewing from the lounge or bed. It also did not have the 'promised view' but looked onto a untidy neighbouring property. Reception staff quickly dealt with our 'complaint' and moved us at a small extra cost to a 'garden suite'. (garden/pool Outlook). This room was also excellent, had a more respectable size TV plus a Bath instead of shower only. Worth the extra Euro 30.00 per night. Owners obviously pay attention to detail, making this property a special place to which we will return.
