The room and bath are very clean and larger than expected. However, despite a lovely large balcony, smoking is permitted outside so neighbor's smoke ruins the experience. The smoke also drifts in if one keeps the door open, which we wanted to do to let the fresh air in. Some kind of chemical-based aroma--not natural --permeated the room and the... More

Dear Guest, I'm really sorry that you found so many problems during your two nights stay with us. As you may have noticed the Hotel is TOTALLY smoke free also in the area of breakfast that is in the garden (!), but of course we can't prevent other guests from somoking in the open air of their terrace. As a... More

Breakfast is good with great variety of fruits, pastries, juices and coffees. The housekeepers shoved all of our belongings to one corner. We asked for 30min late checkout but it wasn't possible...

We stayed for 6 days in late July and can recommend this hotel highly. We were impressed with the staff most of all, who couldn't have been more helpful and courteous. The room we had on the fourth floor was lovely and the view was truly amazing. Breakfast was included and was a buffet with great variety. The location is... More

We have just returned from a wonderful week. I can only reiterate what fellow customers have said. We were allocated a first floor room with large balcony, sun beds, and spectacular views of bay and hillside. We would have liked to have taken more advantage of this, apart from early morning and evening, but there was too much to see... More

In many ways this hotel was very good. The facility is nice and situated such that our room had nice views of the cove area. The breakfast was a good start for the day. The staff was extremely helpful and very engaged. The main thing that prevents me from giving the hotel a higher rating is that the bed was... More

Dear Guest, thank you for your nice review. How sad for me to hear that you did not share with us your matter with beds; infact we do have softer mattresses for guests who prefer softer sleeping. Of course we can't fix a problem we know anything about but anyway I'm sorry that you didn't not fully enjoy your stay.... More
