Our daughters treated my wife and myself to a stay at the hotel as a wedding anniversary present.Everything about our stay was perfect,from the friendly and efficient attitude of the staff down to the smallest detail in our room which was furnished in the Art Deco style as are all the guest rooms and the hotel in general.It was wonderful to sit in the cocktail bar before dinner,men in their evening suits,ladies looking stunning sipping cocktails and listening to a quartet playing thirties music.Dinner was served at a leisurely pace with music being played just loud enough to be enjoyed but not annoying.The hotel is situated in a superb position on the island the views are wonderful and there are some lovely walks.I rate this hotel very highly.One downside,if you need good wi fi connection it is very weak in the hotel unless you are standing next to reception.
