We stayed at the hotel for a week for the second part of our honeymoon. The view from our room was absolutely incredible. The room was nice and we received a free night and complimentary bottle of wine as it was our honeymoon. In general the hotel was lovely but without the view I really don't think it would have that much going for it.
Lovely pool area, nice views from all areas of the hotel, lovely food, resonable treatments and friendly staff in the spa, Good access to the sea (excellent snorkelling), very quiet (I believe there are only 12 rooms and often we were the only ones by the pool or in the restaurant)
Very steep steps down to the sea a nightmare in the heat and certainly not suitible for those who have difficulty walking or those with young children. The staff sometimes seemed to be irritated that they had to do things when you wanted help as they were often sitting around because it was so quiet (although not all staff as some were very helpful). The road to the hotel is TERRIBLE. I read other reviews saying that it is a dirt track but it can't even be called that. It is horrendous and although the hotel provides transport on the hour the latest pick up is 8.30 which just isn't late enough (especially considering the prices of the rooms). There is a lack of atmosphere in the hotel due to the low numbers of guests (I know this would be heaven for a lot of people!) which means that you don't really want to be sitting around in the bar at nightime so it would be nice to be able to go elsewhere in the evening.
