“Villa Shanti”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

Stayed here just one night. There is no parking lot and street parking is usually full. Small but cozy place. Shower had no curtains or door so floor got really wet. Resturant staff are slow. Dinner menu was pretty good however breakfast was poor.

I visited with my family for the weekend and found the hotel very comfortable. There is a nice continental breakfast which is served in the lovely internal courtyard. The only small downside is that there was no door to the bathroom so the morning light disturbed our sleep a little, we stayed in a delux double room.
We would be likely to stay again as the staff were very very helpful and pleasant.

We stayed here for a long weekend with friends. We booked the suite, it was lovely and had a private garden/terrace. The bed was comfortable and the shower hot and powerful.

Staff at the restaurant were a fraction slow delivering drinks, food, etc but the quality of the food was excellent.

Housekeeping didn't come to our room until 5pm, which was just as we were getting ready to head out. They returned at 9pm to refresh our water.

Overall, clean and tidy. Service just ok.

This is a very wonderful property. Just Minutes away from the beach. The rooms are good, pretty old fashioned with huge doors and windows. The food is just amazing over there. I loved everything i ate. The staff is very friendly.. we always look back to go to this hotel and would definetly visit again.
