on arriving at the hotel, you are met by the owner who hands you over to the delightful, forever smiling, Suzanne, and one of the most stunning views you're likely to come across. The poolside area is clean and attractive, however this was the fourth pool of our trip and the only one we couldn't see the bottom of. It was also often strewn with dead flies etc. The little children's pool beside it, by contrast was clear and inviting. By our fourth day the pool had been swept of debris and the water was becoming clearer than it had been.
The room was very small, spartan with little cupboard space. The en suite had no ventilation which meant it remained wet for some time - this was dangerously slippy.The space outside our room was lovely with comfy chairs and a turkish table where you could relax and soak up the view - this could have been enhanced had the glass panels been clean.
Breakfasts were ample with much to choose from: olives, feta, bread, jam, honey, eggs as you wish, fresh juice, tea, coffee and lovely little cakes.
We had two meals: one a kofte, which we thought was one of the tastiest we'd had and two - a chicken sish. This was okay but spoiled by an unattractive mountain of french fries, chipshop-proportion style and some shredded lettuce drowned in balsamic vinegar.(not the much anticipated french cuisine we had read about) When asked if we had enjoyed our meal the best we could muster was an okay. The surprised owner sarcastically congratulated us and wished to shake my wifes hand for 'being the first in 15 years who hadn't enthused abouttheir meal. An embarrassing defensive arguement then ensued which we had difficulty withdrawing from. This unfortunate incident marred the tranquility that this hotel had to offer. Our host requested that we eat at the hotel the following night to 'leave us with a better memory' however we declined feeling the experience would be too uncomfortable for both parties.There are numerous delightful restuarants along the waters edge - the experience of which should not be missed. In summary strengths were: breathtaking views; delightful local staff, lovely breakfasts. Downside: lacked polish, experienced management and room size
