I agree with a reviewer I have just read before posting this myself - I have rated this hotel as excellent as there were so many good points to it, it would have been rude not to, however there were a couple of tiny flaws that should be fixed if possible.
Our flight didn't arrive until 7pm Saturday, so by the time we had got the hire car and made the drive over it was later than I had predicted, so there was no one at all to let us in. It's not an easy place to find anyway - luckily I had been looking on Google Streetview so knew what to aim for. The extremely helpful bar lady from the bar in front of the hotel and the restaurant owner next door managed to get in touch with the hotel manager for us, who had to drive down to let us in. Apparently the room key had been left with the coffee shop, but as we were later than expected they had shut up and gone home. Tip - Provide an accurate arrival time in advance and leave your phone number just in case...
We had rented a loft suite - room 7, which was amazing. I cannot fault the ability to be able to lie in bed in the morning with the terrace doors open, watching and listening to the ocean. The room was nicely decorated, and there was a separate kitchen area that was bigger than I expected, although you had to use a piece of card to keep the fridge door shut. The downfall to the room was the bathroom. The walls were peeling in places and the drains smelt awful whenever anyone took a shower. Small things like the towel rail falling off or the bathroom furniture being old and shoddy felt like a real letdown compared to the rest of the suite.
The other major downfall was the WiFi. never worked in the room although we did report it, and even reception in the public areas was sketchy.
Breakfast in the indoor courtyard was pleasant although fairly basic continental fare.
Overall I would definitely recommend staying here, but take note of the minor flaws and plan round them.
