5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

This hotel is a great find, it is beach front located and offers some of the best food on the coast... The staff and service is exceptional and as regular visitors we are always made to feel very welcome!!!

The pool is great also with VIP beds, and fabulous Champagne offers as well as amazing cocktails!!!

Highly Recommended!!!!

After a slight hiccup with the booking which was quickly and efficiently sorted out by friendly staff we decided to have a drink and eat before going to our rooms. We ( there were four of us) were shown to a delightful window overlooking the Med with open glass curtains allowing a pleasant breeze to circulate. Although it was a set menu for Sunday lunch there was enough choice to please everybody. I had the curry of the day which was excellent. Apparently the kitchen has a resident Indian chef, and it showed. There was a well stocked wine list but on this occasion we chose the house wines which were very good indeed. Service was excellent, friendly and efficient. The staff here are delightful. Always a smile and a friendly greeting. There are also plenty of them so wherever you were, round the pool, on a sun lounger or on the terrace service was prompt and with a smile.
The rooms, or mini suites as they are referred to are excellent, spacious and well appointed, and the air conditioning worked. The only niggle was that it was necessary to duck under the dressing table to plug in hair tongues etc. Our room had a balcony overlooking the sun terrace and the sea. The bed was extremely comfortable and we slept with the windows open listening to the lapping waves.
We ate in the restaurant for one evening of our stay. Everything was superb. Food, wine, service, none could be faulted. I consider it the best hotel restaurant I have eaten in and one of the best of any restaurant. A combo of three provided a musical background. They were very good indeed. Not at all intrusive and a broad choice of songs.
There was no shortage of sun loungers and towels were provided. There is an excellent pool bar and if they haven't got what you're looking for in the drinks line it doesn't exist!
All in all an excellent stay. I shall certainly return. In fact I can't wait!

Room Tip: Ask for a mini suite with balcony and sea view

We visited the restaurant in the hotel to see Jersey Boys (tribute act) with a dinner. The location was simply stunning and the whole evening incredibly enjoyable from start to finish. Can't wait to visit again or maybe even stay!!

Had a few nights here and left a bit disappointed. This place has great potential to be a top class relaxing boutique type hotel. It also has great potential to be a top class beach club or a top class event venue. Problem is that it is trying to be all of these things and it is too small to get away with it. We ended up feeling like outsiders in the hotel we were staying at which was a shame as we had such high hopes.

We were recommended to eat at this hotel and we were not disappointed.
Fantastic Food
Brilliant Location
Excellent Service
Best of all we were not rushed to eat and move on.
A real treat, pricey but worth every penny.

Believe me there is no negatives with this hotel. Anybody who highlights a negative must have been really unlucky or have a pessimistic outlook on life. Everything from arriving and been shown your outstanding room too dining in the first class restaurant was first class. It is a little bit pricey but unfortunately you get what you pay for in life and on this occasion it was worth it.

If I was to find any concerns with the hotel, then I would question the over 14 yrs of age rule! There was defiantly youths stopping in the hotel during our stay and also no restriction of people in the restaurant at night. Obviously a lot of locals use the restaurant at night and any age is allowed in. Shame as not everybody wants to hear children crying at night when they are eating there meal.

We would defiantly stay there again but would question the over 14 yrs of age rule?

Room Tip: Any on the front with a sea veiw

My wife I stayed at this hotel for (10) days in a sea facing room with magnificent views from the 4th July to the 14th July and I must say we had a wonderful time which was very relaxing to say the least.

The location of the facilities, food, service, and the entertainment was brilliant and the management team, Glen / John and all the staff throughout the entire hotel, especially Jessica were very, very friendly during our visit every single day and we shall be returning next year.
