Let's start with the positives: The location is excellent, good pools, right on the beach, rooms are fine. However, this hotel was a comedy of errors service wise that ensure it does not match the price and status. First, our confirmed hotel transfer from the airport (which is way over what a taxi you can book yourself there costs, btw)... More

Rooms are confortables and silent with queen s bed. Good shower and clean. Little balcony with view on the luxury garden. Two bars on the beach with beers at reasonable price. Restaurant at average level for here but a stunning view on the ocean if you are lucky to get a table outside. Double price for new year!

my mama always says that a hotels breakfast speaks louder than all the advertising they could do!! the breakfast at Severin is expansive and extensive to say the least , catering to all sorts of palates. the view of the sea lapping gently on the sand is enough to make you think you stepped into a capsule of time.

I'm glad I stayed at Severin this past weekend. I settled on it after reading good reviews on it here. The service did not dissapoint; from the reservations department to the front desk staff when I arrived, to the cleaning staff and even the cashier who was sad to see me leave. I would especially like to thank Joachim (... More

Had a group dinner and it was superb. The set up was very simple and classy at the same time. this experience took having dinner by the ocean to the next level and the food was diverse and sumptuous. I can only imagine how the place is during the day; i could as well just see for myself.
