I have to admit I was a little concerned about our weekend break choice having read some of the recent reviews but this was not necessary.
We were checked in by a friendly lady who gave us all the information we needed for an enjoyable stay including some hints and tips of things to see and do on the island!
Our room was spacious with superb views of the water and harbours. The bed turned out to be one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in!
The bar was busy with a wedding but we were lucky enough to grab some space on the wonderful sun terrace and enjoyed the people watching!
We chose to eat in the Brasserie restaurant having overheard a fabulous testimonial from some other guests who had eaten the night before! So pleased that we did - the staff were attentive and helpful and made our dinner a real dining experience. The duck with 5 spice potato terrine is a must. We enjoyed dessert (through choice) in the bar area along with coffee and liquors.
Breakfast on Sunday was extremely busy but as early risers we appeared to miss the main rush - a traffic light system is in place at the hotel to advise guests of the busy times - very handy! The continental choice was superb, better than some European hotels we have stayed in and the coffee and tea were free flowing.
We were disappointed that time on the island did not allow us to utilise the leisure facilities at the hotel, the pool looked superb and the beauty treatments, extremely reasonable. A perfect excuse to return I think!
All in all a wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable stay - a home away from home in less than a 2 hour drive!
