I booked last minute for 5 nights at this hotel, as I loved the look of the pool online. My pre-pay room was upgraded on arrival to a bungalow, complete with outdoor shower, sea-view balcony and 3-times the size of the room I had paid for. The loveliest thing about the hotel is the nooks and crannies you stumble upon - swings in the garden, little stair-climbing challenges built into the hills, surprise visits from the hotel peacocks at your front door. For such a sprawling hotel, it felt quite intimate. The spa and the treatments are AMAZING - the lovely wooden building housing the treatment rooms is majestic and the staff couldn't be lovelier. Great value for money. Pool was huge and the hotel is also right on the beach. The rooms could do with a little more TLC (especially the bathroom) and the breakfast buffet is comically enormous for the amount of guests that were there. Brilliant gym facilities. It's a little off the beaten track, so prepare in advance if you want the front desk to order you a taxi into town. Be prepared to negotiate, as often the taxi drivers will charge a lot for the short ride....but there is really no other way to get around. It really is a stunning hotel though and excellent value for the services and amenities provided.
