On the plus side, throughout our stay the staff were unfailingly helpful, friendly and charming. The views are stunning, the food is fine (though a very long wait for our food in the Terrace restaurant in the evening), but the self-catering apartments (two of them) were a real disappointment. I had to buy ear plugs because of the noise from the road in one of the apartments, which also had very uncomfortable beds. Both the apartments had shabby furniture and decor (including mould and discoloured grout in one bathroom), barely adequate kitchen facilities, and I don't know what is going on with the water supply but one bathroom had a mere dribble of cold water available in the washbasin, while one of the bathrooms in another apartment had no hot water to the bath at all. I don't know if the hotel rooms are perhaps better maintained (the main public areas of the hotel are), but I wouldn't recommend either of the apartments we stayed in. It was a real disappointment as we had been looking forward to our holiday. Certainly not worth the money, sadly.
