My Fiance and I booked this hotel for two nights this summer and ended up leaving early. I will give them that the design of the hotel is unique and wonderful to have artists design each room. However that gimmick is pretty much all they have going for them. Very over priced. We booked a room that advertised a double sea view. When we arrived we were severely disappointed to find the double sea view was on the same wall, small windows and we could see the sea if we REALLY searched over the roof tops. The shower is tiny and has no stability of temperature. Goes from freezing to scalding in a second. There was never anyone at the front desk to talk to, and when there was I was talking to and getting four answers from four different people. The beds were comfortable. The room was clean. The breakfast they serve is delicious and healthy. I would not stay here again.
