To get to the shared reception of Estrelicia and Mimosa there are over 160 broad, shallow steps with a handrail and benches to rest every 50 steps. Taxis, minibuses and jeeps can get up to... More

The hotel room was spacious maid service every day with clean towels every other day and sheets changed regularly. The restaurant had a good selection of food the salads were lovely, choice... More

The hotel was good value for the money. Our room was quite basic but very clean. The towels were worn and should be replaced. The staff were very friendly and helpful. To reach the hotel you have to walk up 2 hills which is difficult and tiring at the end of the day
