The view from the balconies of the room was great and the spaghetti in the restaurant were very good. But those were the best parts. The service was poor and mostly unfriendly. Also the breakfast buffet was very poor and disappointing.

The location is superb for walkers and nature lovers. This is the best place on the island. The rooms are good and differs in sizes. Its all in rustic style and simple. The food is good and they do have a lot of good wine.

As I said the location in the mountains is superb. Unfortunately not much else is! The room was perfectly serviceable but the food at both dinner, a very tired buffet with limited choice and the breakfast, again a very limed choice was awful.
