Fantastic service & environment all round. No complaints. A complimentary welcome drink and free Wi-Fi were much appreciated. Limo service from/to the airport was timely and the drivers were very friendly. Enjoyed taking long walks along the beach in the mornings. Highly recommend this hotel for someone looking for quiet and relaxing time.
