This hotel looks to have been newly built/refurbished and is in an excellent condition. Infinity pool, lovely cocktails and super fancy rooms decorated to a very high modern standard. It was a nice breakfast with fresh omelettes or pancakes to order. Spa is very tastefully done and offers a range of treatments. We did not sample the restaurant food as...

An infinity pool, a nice cocktail, the complete tropical atmosphere; how can one start better with his stay in the Vanila hotel? Maybe a good dinner afterwards (fresh fish grilled in front of you) and some local girls giving a small dance show? The large room with comfortable beds makes it all complete. The staff is friendly and gives you...

outstanding gardens and fantastic infinity pool with a bar perfect for a drink watching the sunset. the rooms are spacious and well equipped, ours had a lovely balcony with chairs and impressive sea views. the only down side is the beach, not one of the best of the isle.

So it was a simple stopover before departing for Constance Tsarabanjina. Vanila has a beautiful view out over the water and...

I loved this hotel. The 4 swimming pools are so beautiful and peaceful. The rooms are lovely, and the ones with ocean views have a great view of the sunset. The grounds have private sun loungers scattered around the property so it is very peaceful and relatively quiet for the size of the hotel. The main swimming pool made me...
