Lovely little beach, plenty of sun beds at the pools you can't reserve them with towels the waiters move them if you do. Bar service around the pool is fab! Lovely cocktails, staff are helpful. Room was clean hairdryer broke... More

Our first stay in an adult only hotel and it will be hard to beat. No scramble for sunbeds there were plenty around the 3 pools and nobody reserved them with towels. I did see a member of staff removing towels from 2 sunbeds a couple had tried to reserve before 10am, so this was enforced. You also had the... More

This hotel has a great location, extremely great staff in all areas and the room we had was well furnished and clean. Buffet service in the restaurent at breakfast and dinner was ideal for us, good variety of options, all replenished frequently. If you sit outside your food will cool quickly - which may explain other reviewers comments. It's very... More

Went here with my mother in September 2015 for a 10 day stay. It was absolutely fabulous, we had a sea view room with quite a large balcony (we were on the end so had a bit extra than the other ones) overlooking the main pool. During the evenings you could listen to the entertainment (though not all were great... More

Beautiful peaceful hotel. Lovely views, particularly enjoyed sitting by the sea for my evening meal at sunset. Comfortable well appointed rooms. Fantastic host in the restaurant- Julia I think her name is. Lovely resort. Plenty of choice for food to suit all. One of the best holidays I have had.

This is a first class hotel, in a quiet location, but close to amenities, with excellent service, amenities, and food. Location - more or less on the beach, with a non-busy road between the two. In a small village, next to a feww bars, shops, and eateries. Very quiet and peaceful area - not for high life seekers, or those... More

Feel very lucky to have been able to return to the island hotel for our 4th visit. The hotel in our opinion is majestic in its own way. Adults only. Well presented. All staff work tremendously to ensure to have a safe happy pleasant stay. We stayed in 619 corner room with a sea view, absolutely stunning. Room just the... More

We were a little disappointed with our room as the only view we had was of a tree! We spoke to the receptionist and as soon as they had another room they changed it. Second room was bigger over looked the pool and even though the view was through a palm tree it was much better. The hotel was closing... More
