By that time the baggage arrived . The rooms are comfortable and well furnished. The breakfast selection is truly amazing and everything was very fresh.... More

Very nice hotel - frendly and honest staff, left our safe box open but everything was untouched, really appreciated that! Loved the interior design of the hotel very much. As we loved to swim, we loved the heated pool, but would have appreciated cleaning the pool. Same trash was in the pool during whole week. But no doubts, would choose... More

I had a very relaxing week in the beautiful pool area, the weather was good so my daughter swam in the heated outdoor pool 2 or 3 times every day. I was there with my adult daughter. The staff are excellent and were very attentive. We have had a time share at the Savoy since 2001 and try to come... More

The hotel was excellent, the rooms were spacious and clean and comfortable and the food is excellent too. The service was also excellent. The pool and location is fabulous and the hotel I highly recommend. The only criticism I have for a five star hotel, the mini bar didn't get topped up and when by the pool, you have to... More

Right on the edge of town within walking distance to downtown. Right on the ocean and with several pools even heated. But the best is the exceptional service. Both in reception and restaurant and poolman and cleaning. (By the way the bellman is a little grumpy but that doesnt matter ;-)
