We stayed here for 2 nights before returning home to New Zealand. It is in a perfect location - close to the beaches, restaurants and shops. Driving in was a bit of a hassle as there is not much room to park and unload, it was actually a bit confusing. On checking in we were offered a glass of champagne - a very nice touch, but later we found out that we hadn't been told about the full facilities and options of the hotel, which was a bit disappointing.
Our room was lovely overlooking the garden, which was very special but getting to our room was a bit strange as we had to go up and over and then back down. But there was an excellent side entrance that we took for the rest of our stay. Checking out was a breeze, very helpful front desk staff. We would definitely stay again.
