Though we had booked to another hotel of the same group, as that was overbooked we were transferred to Amphora Resort and Suites. As a compensation we were offered upgrades to sea view suites, free transportation to the spa of the other hotel and a free three course lunch. Honestly, never felt so pampered anywhere else.
Service was fantastic, complements to all members of staff. They attended to our every need fast, efficiently and with a smile.
Location is ideal, right on the sea with a coastal pedestrian road in front of the rooms which we made good use of.
The rooms/ suites per se are enormous and the minimalism makes them look even bigger. The style of the whole hotel is extreme minimalism, which was ok in the rooms but the hotel lobby for instance, verged on empty. The only objection I had with the rooms was the empty mini bar and the absence of instant coffee/ sugar/ tea sachets (since there were kettles available). Other than that, bathrooms (huge as well- two wash basins) with nice toiletries and very comfortable beds.
The only reason I am not giving this hotel the excellent mark is because it looks (and is) unfinished. There are still building works to be completed (the floor area between the reception and the rooms and near the pool). The garden lacks inspiration and looks unkempt, but I am sure that sometime before the summer period, building and gardening works are going to be finished.
We would definitely return given the opportunity.
