Beautifully situated hotel right by the sea, we stayed a night and had a very pleasant time. The room overlooked the ocean and a garden and was equipped with feather pillows, cool bed sheets and big beds. This was a welcomed surprise and we really enjoyed our visit.

Myself & my partner dined in the bar of the hotel. The food was quick and absolute delicious. I didn't leave a crumb on my plate. We then went to the dance that night & the staff were so friendly and obliging. The experience was nothing but positive at this hotel. We will definitely return in the near future.
