Great place to relax and enjoy. Junior suite with a sea view was a amazing. Service was very good and stuff was friendly. Room was very clean and it was really nice, when they brought for us a wine bottle and fruit basket to room.

Outdoor dining area with a seaview was awesome! Good food with lots of variety! Rooms were very nice. A high hill nearby for running in the mornings and nice view to the village from the top. Gym was ok too. Fresh orange juice at breakfast was awesome! Staff friendly, especially the man serving coffee at breakfast!
