We stayed at this hotel for 11 nights at the end of September and had a fantastic time. We had a room in the main building and the view from the large balcony was beautiful, we could see across the lovely gardens, the islands in the harbour and across to the mountains in the distance. The room itself was very large and comfortable.
We were on half board so ate dinner in the restaurant most nights. Breakfast was a lovely buffet, with lots of fresh fruit, bread, pastries and a chef cooking eggs, bacon and pancakes to order. Dinner was equally good, with lovely fresh salads and hot dishes for the buffet starter followed by tasty cooked to order mains and more buffet options for pudding. Staff at the restaurant were all very friendly. Only downside for us was that hotel drinks were very expensive, there was no beer on tap and when ordering a decaf coffee after dinner you get a nescafe sachet with a jug of hot water.
The walk into town was a nice walk along the seafront and only took us about 15 minutes, the harbour and shopping areas were all very pretty and there were plenty of places to eat and drink. There is a little shop just across the road from the hotel which was handy for drinks and snacks at much cheaper prices than the hotel.
Hired a car from Club car rentals just over the road, much better prices than those through tour reps and even cheaper than those on their leaflet so worth going to speak to them. It's definitely worth having a car to explore the island for a few days.
Overall very relaxing, most of our time was spent lazing on the sunbeds by the edge of the sea and there were always some available. The sea was beautiful and warm to swim in, so we never even needed to use the pool. Being in our early 30's we were some of the youngest guests there, but it was fine for us, just meant it was nice and quiet with very few children which is what we were looking for. I'd definitely recommend this hotel to others.
