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...

The rooms, bed, interiors, pool and the staff were all great. Didn't try their breakfast as I woke up past that time but it read well and sure it could cure any hangover.

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.

Oozing unpretentious style. Lovely little pockets of outdoor communal areas that manage to be at once private and yet shared for sociable encounters.

As a first port of call we were disappointed to find that the hotel was too small to warrant a restaurant. The room was large and comfortable and the hotel was close to restaurants and ten minutes walk from the beach.
