in the very relaxing hotel. Food, staff are excellent. Situated in the very quiet countryside away from the main tourist attractions this hotel offers you everything you could possible need for a very relaxing break. The staff are courteous and offer you everything you could possibly need.

The accommodations and facilities were lovely but our rooms weren't ready when we arrived despite paying months in advance. I'd also suggest only booking online and not trying to negotiate over the phone because what I believed to have arranged in July, did not eventuate in January. Shame my memory of this place is tarnished.

We stayed here with some friends mid-January for four nights. I'll begin by saying the room we stayed in was pretty basic, but it was large and clean. The bathroom was big, and occasionally gave off an unpleasant odour, which we masked with insense. We stayed in a room facing a pool. The location is good, pretty close to local... More
