We've stayed here before so it was a surprise to find that the place has been totally rebuilt since we were last there. But the rebuild is good, the new place being really really well done.
The room was a good size but had a nice style, and was much more modern than the old place. We got a fruit basket and welcome drinks on arrival. A nice touch.
Food was good. Breakfast was nice on the roof terrace overlooking the beach. We also ate a lunch there and the pasta was excellent.
Staff were excellent, really attentive and helpful.
I think we got a really good deal on the rooms, with the rates being a lot lower than those published, which added to the generally good experience.
Overall though highly recommended - but at the real prices maybe slightly less good in terms of value.
