This place is amazing. The decor, the service, the staff, the facilities all 5-star. Although you can walk to the city in 25 min, the complimentary shuttle bus service certainly helped in the August heat. The room we had on the 3rd floor was perfect, quiet and had a lovely balcony. The pool was fantastic, though in the summer the sun beds do get taken quickly. We ate in the restaurant the first night and though the food was good, the service could have been slightly more attentive. However these are minor issues as cannot really fault the overall experience. Many, many thanks to Jean-Pierre, Marco, Sebastian, Vanessa, Leonardo and all the other staff who all made us feel like royalty and made our anniversary so special and unforgettable. Can't wait to come back again!
