The hotel is beautifully designed and decorated, with large rooms and terrace, with an outdoor and also indoor pool, with spa facilities.
The room was having fresh roses, espresso mashine and complimentary fruits and water every day.
Fantastic sleep, very good wi-fi in the room and in all the hotel.
As minuses I will mention the lack of facilities for disabled persons - making difficult for example for everybody to carry a trolley to/from the room - and the service where there is a real opportunity of improvement: very slow in serving breakfast in case you wanted something else than already existing, an omelette for example, mistakes in getting something from the bar, mistakes in giving the keys of the room (and the distance to a room was considerable, in case you have to come back), slow and bad service in doing the check-out, no presence during the working hours in the only shop of the hotel selling books, poor service at the tourist desk.
I have also booked in advance from the hotel a car transfer from the airport but the car did not manage to be there.
Breakfast of very good quality but limited in choices and without variety which starts to be annoying after 2-3 days.
The distance to town - about 20 minutes by car - is fairly covered by a free shuttle bus going to and from the central market about every 2 hours.
The beauty of the hotel and the relaxing atmosphere is however reccommending a stay there.
