One of the reviews below sums up the garden suites well, all the benefits of a hotel with the relaxed feel of self catering apartments! It's difficult not to gush to be honest, the whole experience was simply lovely. The staff are a credit to the place, they really care that you have a lovely holiday and the personal touches that were put in I have never experienced from a hotel before!
In terms of the room - brand new, spotlessly clean, fresh fluffy white towels each day, powerful shower, lovely comfy double bed, 2 balconies which caught the sun all day and aircon in the bedroom. We had room 210 which was perfect for us as a couple. Don't expect 5* luxury, but a very high standard indeed. A fridge filled with fruit wine and water was a very nice touch as we arrived so late also.
The pool - again spotlessly clean, quiet, relaxing, areas for shade or just to bake in ('proper' sun beds!) Bar area for drinks or as on many occasions we had a beer served to us on our sun loungers!
In terms of the staff they appear to be one lovely family, there if you need them but not at all obtrusive, and the other reviews are true on a number of occasions we had delicious cake served to us, not for any reason really!
We had a bit of an issue with a late flight on our last day, leaving at 7pm, I went to ask if we could store our bags somewhere etc and we were given a whole new room for the day! Just super good service and a lovely way to end the perfect holiday.
Would not only recommend but wholeheartedly encourage anyone to book a stay here, as a couple we had our own space but there were a mix of families also and activities such as a weekly private boat trip to get involved in etc.
As a person who stays in soulless London hotels most weeks this place was so refreshing, I just hope they keep doing what they are doing! Truely unique!
