First impressions always count - Victor, the concierge, greeted us on arrival and throughout the entire trip could not have been more helpful with suggestions and assistance. Our reservation was not in the system correctly when we arrived, but the girl at the desk offered us a coffee at the bar while she sorted everything out.
We got a gorgeous room overlooking the sea which was spacious and clean. A few downsides as mentioned here in other places drop it from a 5 to a 4 star for us: the queen bed was two thin-mattressed twin beds pushed together; no handcream or conditioner (which becomes an issue in this era of limited liquids on flights); chairs on the balcony not cleaned daily; and no scxreen on the door - and based on the number of bites we had, there are plenty of mosquitos. Overall, the maid service was excellent. The lovely wood floors were cleaned daily and the room was always spotless. Further, in keeping with the "service" attitude, clothes left on chairs were put neatly away, teddy bears tucked into bed, and personal toiletries in the bathroom tidied but not all moved around.
The included breakfast was always good and plentiful. Specialty coffees and sparkling wine and water were also a part of every breakfast buffet - a nice bonus compared to many. As expected, always someone on hand for special requests of eggs and omelets. Overall, a good English breakfast every day. Service (coffee refills, clear plates, etc) was impeccable.
Although Victor recommended several restaurants in easy walking distance, due to night blindness we chose to eat dinners at the hotel all 4 nights. We're not buffet people so we ate all meals at the 24 hour restaurant. Changing daily specials, combined with a great offer of local wine and "cafe meal" kept dinners from being repetitive. Food was consistently good. Not a 5 star restaurant, but very good.
Overall, we would go back in a heartbeat, and recommend it to anyone who asks.
There's an old joke that reaturants in hell have French waiters. After our recent trip, we think the waiters in heaven are Maltese.
