We booked a honeymoon suite and had very high expectations after reading so many wonderful reviews. However we were sorely disappointed. Yes, the views are spectacular and the host is great. But the suite we had was at the very bottom of the cliff. It took approximately 58 steps to get from our room to the pool/reception area and another 66 very steep and uneven "stairs" to get to the main street. Ok, we don't really mind the exercise but the 'suite' looked dingy and old. Jacuzzi in the bathroom hadn't been used for a long time, I guess because when we tried it on, there were black residues pumping out from the outlets. After that, we just gave up using the jacuzzi. So we used the shower instead. Water leaked from underneath the tub after showering and the floor was very wet. Not much bathroom toiletries were provided also. The shampoo and shower gel was a "all-in-one" in a pump. Overall, we would advise anyone who is booking the hotel to book the rooms as advertised in their website and be prepared. Most importantly, wear shoes with good grip because we have seen people falling down.
