We stayed at Essque Hotel during low season (April 2013) and enjoyed the fact that we were sharing hotel facilities, swimming pool, jetty etc. with very few other guests. This added an extra value to the holiday. Common spaces and rooms are elegantly decorated, staff very professional but the top rank of this hotel is the Cuisine. Breakfast is delicious, a la carte menu with a number of options - on top of that home made confitures, pastries, yogurt, smoothies etc. Lunch can be served at the Jetty restaurant, mostly middle-easter mezzeh and grilled fish/meat. Location is unique in the middle of the ocean. Dinner is the best part - quality of the food is top quality and presentation superb. Restaurant staff extremely professional but with a personal touch. We stayed at Essque with a 2 year old son who was pampered by all staff. Restaurant accomodated any last minute request for a child menu. Definitely recommended - we would say in low season even more, when less guests are around.
