We took the excellent airport express coach direct to the port. It takes an hour but only cost 2.40 euros each. The hotel welcome was slightly off hand. Our room 45 was comfy but the cheap pine furniture, the air con that dripped water and the shower that flooded the floor meant it felt less than 4 star. The west facing balcony overlooking the valley towards the sea compensated for any defects.
The buffet breakfast was fine but our 2 evening meals were disappointing compared with meals in local restaurants.
Xaghra centre with its cafes and bus stops is only 10 minutes walk away. Doing the return walk twice a day was a bit of a chore on a hot day but worth it for the hotel's quiet location.
The hotel's courtyard and two pools were delightful and very relaxing.
There was a good mix of residents - a few families, mainly couples, mix of nationalities.
We'd happily go back. The climate, the character of the hotel and the friendliness of the island are all such positives.
