The property is newly built so the facilities are in great condition. The rooms are reasonably large and clean. The swimming pool is however small and gets crowded with 4 people!... More

Great hotel surrounded by nature with a beautiful view on the sea. Lovely decorations inside and outside the rooms. The staff was especially efficient and friendly and the food absolutely delicious. They even went to buy lobsters for us and cooked them to perfection. Thank you so much !
