Stayed here in Feb 2014. Had a fabulous time and thought the location and the beach restaurants were excellent.Delayed writing this review to hope for some good news about Bruno, but so far none. I agree with all the previous reviewers that it is a real shame that this hotel is slipping down the rankings. If the joint owner presently suffering from his stroke can fully recover I think they will get back to number 1. Sitting in the gardens at the side of the river watching kingfishers and herons is truly wonderful. With the beach such a short walk away, evening dining is such a pleasure, something we did on most days. We had no problems with our room which was in the main building facing the sea, sitting on our balcony sipping G&T's while watching the sunset was magical. Would consider returning next year if the owner situation gets back to it's previous high standard. Will be watching !!!
