Excellent location overlooking the rocks below, with the Atlantic crashing in. We had an executive room that gave you an 180' view with a lounge area round the corner from the bedroom. Only problem was that the windows needed some attention, as they did not shut properly and were difficult to open, which I think would be due to the... More

My first impression was not good: an hotel you have to pay 6 euros per day for wi-fi in the room (there's free wi-fi only in the lobby) on the eve of the 21st century where wi-fi is a widespread commodity, it is an absurd to me. But, thanks to the management who understood I needed the internet to work... More

If you want luxury, this is the place for you. Great big pool, hot tub and even our room had a jacuzzi. We were on the 8th floor in an executive suite. Amazing! The breakfast is possibly not the most extravagant, but we enjoyed a relaxing time. The hotel is close to Barra, and you can walk down to the... More

Hotel is ok but nothing more quite expensive. Staff ok but not very helpful. Near the lighthouse and some bars and restaurants for other places you have to take a taxi. Stand is outside hotel. Room was spacious but noisy. Breakfast is good with views

The most disturbing part of this hotel stay was the arrival... when we arrived the hotel looked closed. It was late in the evening, but there was not a single light on anywhere. The hotel is down a rather deserted street with multiple buildings under construction. Very unpleasant welcome. The room was large, with a decent bathroom and a relatively... More
