We loved our short stay at this hotel. We booked a family room and were pleasantly surprised by its size. We had two separate bedrooms and bathrooms and a huge balcony overlooking the sea and lovely pool below. There is lots of walking, but with the great food, we enjoyed the exercise. The hotel is built right into the cliffs....

Not really 'young' guests, rather pushy 'GO's' and you need to pay for extra's like a chair at the beach, orange juice and other drinks. Isolated hotel, it is difficult to discover the neighborhood without taxi or car.

The staff was not very helpful but the hotel is beautiful with wonderful food. The views and beaches are stunning. The room is basic but adequate. The common area are very pretty. There are many stairs and a small hill leading to the beach so be aware of this before booking. If you or any in your party have mobility...

This resort, while having amazing views and excellent communal/pool areas, is definitely not a 4 star resort. We arrived and there was no one to greet us and we had to wait in the lobby for a long time. Our room was in an underground area away from the rest of the hotel, which was extremely disappointing as we had...
