The hotel is undergoing major renovation. However they have managed to restore part of the rooms and restaurant. Beautiful view of the sea. Had dinner by the pool . Breakfast had the usual spread . They serve fresh juices which are made after you order. Service is good. Tables are set beautifully with all the fine crockery and cutlery. Has an old world charm. If you are fond of the 5 star ambience this is not for you. For those who enjoy history go up to their library, take a picture with Prince Philips car and enjoy strolling around seeing pictures of important guests who have stayed at the hotel.
