Some people will love this place - others not. I liked it. It has a nice sense of itself - unassuming and rather old fashioned. The service was very good if rather 'old school'. You certainly have to be a fan of relaxed shabby chic. We ate in one evening and this was a bit of a disappointment. The setting was wonderful, the menu appealing and a good wine list. But food was small in quantity and poorly presented. The kitchen could do with a kick! What I liked most was the refusal to glitz up, to create an over priced spa and instead maintain a wonderful, freezing open air pool, and you can't beat the beach.
I'd happily go again, but I can understand why some reviewers are less generous.
