The room was nice but perhaps 4* quality, although the lobby, bar definitely looked 5*. The room was nice if a little old, and the view of the beach was pleasant. Room service was dependable but outrageously expensive (40€ each for breakfast, was it?) and while the food was very good, there was not much of it. The bar made... More

We had a four night stay here.Everything about this Hotel is fabulous! Staff are very attentive and friendly from the moment you walk in. Do not expect a cheapbar bill,however I do think that two cokes by the pool for 20 euros is a little steep! That said if you stay at this level and enjoy the ambiance so what!!... More

We booked a Deluxe Double and upgraded to a sea view when we checked in for a small incremental fee. We were told ours was a non-renovated room but it was still very nice. It was much larger than we expected. The furniture and carpet were a bit worn. It was clean, fresh and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable.... More

We stayed 6 nights at The Hermitage and loved every minute. We were upgraded to a suite on the 5th floor with a balcony overlooking the beach which was gorgeous. When we checked out we found that we had been charged for the upgrade, but this was quickly adjusted when we questioned it. The bed was huge and comfortable, the... More

Lovely Hotel right next to the beach. Atmosphere, food,staff & the room great other than the massive outdoor lights illuminating the building. Fitting of a blackout blind to allow a good nights sleep in darkness in the rooms affected by light ingress , would simply resolve what for us and many others is an issue.

Stayed for 4 nights at the hotel. We had a lovely large room which was clean and the beds are very comfortable. We did not have a sea view but the view over inland were green and pretty.
