Having read some of the reviews here I was a little apprehensive about staying at Ta Cenc...I needn't have been.
Ta Cenc is not for those who want conventional, chain style hotels, however if you like quirky and unique, you're in the right place.
We had a garden room, very nice, big and airy with a private balcony/patio looking out to sea. The patios on the garden view rooms are all positioned in order to make it really difficult to be overlooked, which adds to the privacy.
The restaurant is lovely, outside and built around a 300 year old carob tree. While the service is not swift, waiters were all very helpful and friendly and at no time did we feel forgotten. The food is superb and the four course table d'hote is fantastic value. Breakfast was good, get there early for the warm pain au chocolat, and I recommend the smoked fish, lovely!
As there are three swimming pools at the hotel it's not difficult to find a sun lounger. The spa pool is lovely and child free after 11am, a real oasis.
If you want to relax and let the world pass you by Ta Cenc is the place. OK it's not cheap, but then it is a five star hotel so why would it be? On the other hand neither is it outrageously expensive compared to the UK.
The big question appears to be whether or not Ta Cenc still merits its five star rating. In all honesty, probably not, the housekeeping could be a little better, and there is no doubt that it is in need of a spruce up. However it is definitely at the top end of four star. Think of Ta Cenc as a society Grand Dame, not quite as attractive as she once was, but still a classy date.
