My wife and I stayed here in July for couple of days, the staff was not very welcoming, they had a bad attitude, the breakfast was not worth the money, they just had toast,eggs,cereal, crepes, coffee and couple of juices. We booked our stay via Booking.com, when we got to the hotel the staff said the reservation was cancelled, which... More

The accommodation is first class. The rooms are very close to the beach ( not all with a see view) and the dinning room is next to the beach. The food was excellent and the staff polite and helpful. Wi-Fi is in the lobby. Our departure time was 05=00 and without us asking for a breakfast the evening we were... More

Found this restaurant on our way along the westcoast, asked if we could get dinner and after a short discussion we were accepted as "outsiders". Got Fishcurry, grilled fish, grilled chicken and two octopus salads and it was o.k.. We appreciated that they had transparent plastic curtains to keep the wind out. The card payment should be done at the... More

Dear Sir/ Madame, Kindly understand that it is a peak season for us and it took a while for us to organize to take outside guests as the hotel was fully booked. Of course priority will be given to our half-board, in-house guests. We understand your frustration regarding payment but we did tackle the situation as soon as it occurred.... More

In this place the fish is not good. We ordered one appetizer and two main courses. Only one of this dishes was so and so . Maybe is a good hotel, but not a good restaurant. The position is good but you can enjoy only at Lunch . The dessert was not bad.

We spent five nights here in October 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are not luxurious but are large, comfortable and clean and have everything you need. The staff were excellent and the room service was as good as any top hotel. Our lovely room maid even brought my washing in when it rained and folded it up... More

The hotel was good and the room very comfortable and clean. The food was OK but not special in any way. We were glad we found a little restaurant, Paradisier, that was only 5mins walk away. The service in the restaurant was variable. In particular when the waitresses were on rather then the waiters the service was poor. This was... More

The room was huge, very clean, bathtub and huge shower, TV (with movie channels), paid wifi, indoor pool, but only 20m to the beach. The hotel has its own restaurant where they serve breakfast (included), lunch and dinner. They offer free shuttle buses to the most beautiful beaches (Anse Lazlo) and offer tours to neighbour-islands, that are excellent. The male... More

We spent 6 days at this Charming small hotel with nicely decorated rooms, very clean and quiet. The pros of the hotel are the good family type dinners. We took half board and were positively surprised by the quality of the menus and delicious local flavors. I travelled with my 13 years old daughter who can be picky on food... More

Small property with only 10 rooms with beach access. Polite staff. You pay for what you get. This is not a luxurious property and is located in a very quiet area about 15 mins drive away from the "town" - Cote Dor. Menu is very limited for dinner, especially when on half board. Breakfast is extremely basic with a choice... More
