We stayed here in mid November and I can't say enough good things about this hotel and the staff. The hotel itself is stunning, it is distinctly Mediterranean, the atmosphere is very calming and peaceful. There is an open air restaurant that overlooks the grounds and beach, two crystal clear swimming pools with fountains, and beautiful, colourful gardens. We were warmly welcomed by Aldo the hotel manager and he gave us a tour of the place and we ended up staying in Villa 3 which overlooks the stunning beach.
Our room was more the size of an apartment with floor to ceiling windows, and a shower that opens up into your own private garden. The room was immaculately clean, airy, bright and beautifully decorated. As a very special touch they put in our room two huge bouquets of exotic flowers fresh from their garden. The bed was very comfortable and we had a private patio with lounging chairs.
Our meals were top notch, fresh ingredients and delicious, and the service was excellent. All the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The beach is endless with powdery dark sand and very clean. They also gave us a tide schedule so that we knew when it was safe to swim and the water was a very pleasant temperature for swimming.
Our only regret was that we could only stay one day, we so wanted to stay longer. I highly recommend you treating yourself to this hotel.
