The hotel is built into the side of the cliff - it's almost Bond-like descending in the lift (you need to change halfway down as the first lift can't get any further into the bedrock) and coming out in the cave bar. The hotel is a little bit of an ugly eyesore but it doesn't really matter as you rarely actually get a view of it - most of the time you're either enjoying the stunning sea view (make sure you get a sea view room!) from your balcony or you're down on the terrace by the sea either sunning yourself on a lounger or drinking a local beer watching the sun set. It's really idyllic especially in the evening. I really enjoyed jumping and diving off the terrace into the sea though watch out for sea urchins - it's a good idea to use the ladder to get out rather than the steps.
We didn't take advantage of it but we saw a couple hire a jet ski which was delivered to the terrace for them to hop straight on. You can walk a few hundred yards to the local beach and hire a boat. Just beyond there is the bus to the old town though the hotel is happy to call a cab which comes to about £10 each way. Speaking of which, service is excellent and generally really friendly. The room was a good size and the air-con worked wonders, though the bed was disappointing as it's 2 single beds pushed but not tied together, which means a gap opens up which can swallow the duvet or even a stray limb.
Breakfast is help yourself - though if you get there near to the 10.30am end of service they tend to start taking things back to the kitchen before you're finished. There's a decent choice of hot and cold food and even some sparkling wine. We ate an evening meal on one occasion but weren't that impressed.
Overall it's a really good hotel in a great spot which I'd really recommend, but don't be fooled by its 5 star status. It's a decent 4 star hotel.
