An island of charming hospitality & relaxation. The staff are friendly, efficient & very professional. The spacious rooms, a gem, with air conditioning (properly functioning) & cable TV. Private balcony & garden is the cherry on top. Having booked on a half-board basis was a positive (coincidental) fluke, which I would recommend - meal options are varied & delicious. Dinner... More

I went with my family in June. The weather was superb. The hotel wasnt too packed. The food is scrumptious, however maybe a few more interesting dishes for vegetarians (especially deserts) would be nice. The rooms are spacious. however, the rooms overlooking the main road dont have much privacy as staff and cars pass right outside the room. the gardens... More

We came during low season and many of the amenities weren't in use. The next door neighbor hotel usually works in conjunction but was closed for seasonal renovations. I think to be fair I would need to return, but I doubt that I'd bring a family. Since it is a spa centered hotel, it does not cater to children (book... More

The room was neat and clean. Roomy for the price I paid. Mostly outstanding staff. The only down fall I reached was just the salt water being in the bathing area meaning the bath water and sink water other then that awesome.
