The hotel, although large, doesn't feel huge and impersonal because of the very clever planning. Rooms are grouped and all of them have the most amazing views over the bay. It is stunningly beautiful. The bed was blissfully comfortable - and I generally have a lot of trouble getting comfortable in strange beds - and everywhere was immaculately clean.
Nothing is too much trouble for the staff of this hotel and they, as well as the owner, seem genuinely glad to welcome you and for you to make the most of your stay on this stunning island. If you need just to sit and relax, in addition to your balcony there are swimming pools (indoor and outdoor) and terraces as well as a Spa. Flowers are absolutely everywhere, trailing down walls, over arches, in pots and beds. It's an easy walk down the mountain to the little town at the beach of the bay, where no-one minds you sitting for two hours over a single cup of coffee, stunned into silence by the beauty and tranquillity.
I came for a yoga retreat, and was therefore on a sort of package so my stay was half board. I would suggest anyone doing this starves themselves for a week beforehand as the food was wonderful and very, very plentiful. When we arrived (collected from the port at 3.30 in the morning), we were welcomed with local cakes and wine by the owner and her family. With half board, one 'eats Amorgan' in the evenings. That means many courses of the set menu, most of which is grown in the organic gardens of the hotel, and it's absolutely delicious. In the space of nearly three weeks, I don't think chef repeated himself once. Breakfasts are to die for and cater for both British and European tastes.
Would I recommend it? You bet I would. Would I go back? Certainly, and more than once.
