From the moment we got through the high- walled, unmarked hotel gates, we felt relaxed and pampered. The gardens, pool area and decor just felt perfect. The rooms don't have numbers and we were never asked which of the 11 rooms we were in or had to sign for anything. The staff were well briefed and knew we were in...

Reviewed 18 November 2016 via mobile

Dickman was the last stop on the trip and we've been reluctant to leave the hotel. It's relaxing, the pool is great and the staff are genuinely attentive. Other guests were friendly, probably due to the small size of the hotel and the casual atmosphere. Only complaint would be that the cocktails were a bit average, nothing that a little...

A thousand positives have already been written about this, genuinely boutique villa hotel. All of these remarks are merited. Dickman offers what they offer quite clearly, but the Team will always, happily, cheerfully, go the extra distance to accommodate your requests. Unlike the huge "resort" hotels along the coastline of the country, Dickman gives peace and quiet and relaxation, which...

Loved staying at this hotel its has an easy vibe. Rooms are spacious and the grounds beautifully kept. The location is quiet , and an easy walk to the beach. The beach is not the most gorgeous, so its great that Dickmans has a lovely pool to chill out in.
