Just spent 2 nights in this beautiful property. It is the perfect hotel for an escapade from the city. Not only the view is out of this world, but the service and the care, the ambiance of the hotel and the quality of the food is exceptional. Not to miss the piano bar for cocktails! The position of the Restaurant is wonderful overlooking the ocean an so is the pool. What a view!
The room was beautiful and very comfortable. The bathroom had a heated floor which is nice to walk on when barefoot. It had a lovely patio were you could seat and hear the very satisfying and relaxing sounds of birds.
Everyone went overboard to make my stay wonderful. All the staff was very professional and attentive providing excellent service.
I am returning soon!
