What a gem of a hotel along the coast . Location is stunning with private access to the beach. Hotel was clean and the food was tasty and very reasonably priced . I would recommend staying just for the spectacular view.

This hotel is an excellent one. Situated at a beautiful (private) beach with a beautiful garden at both the front and rear. The hotel is spacious and the rooms are large. The staff are friendly and you will lack for nothing. The breakfast is excellent but I was not impressed by the "a la carte" dinner. However, take a car and drive to a neighboring village.

If you want an excellent base to explore the island this is it. We were in a Junior Suite over looking the sea....how great to wake in the morning with the sun rising , the waves breaking in and the odd bird making the sounds as odd birds do. I would describe it as a good 4 star ...decent rooms, clean....food just average buy no more than one could expect. You need a car to explore the island and get to near by restaurants

Beautiful hotel with breathtaking view and quick access to a lovely beach with cafe/bar. Spacious room but would have liked coffee as well as tea and bottled water. Would have liked to be able to bring a cup of coffee up to our room after breakfast within being told we would be charged for it

Perfect location, spotless cleanliness, comfortable rooms. Very comfortable beds. Only one thing I would change is breakfast, which is ok, mix of continental and british breakfast but after few days is boring.
