This hotel was absolutely breath taking and had the best service I have ever had. The staff were so friendly and called you by name, they were so helpful and there for your every need. The food was absolutely delicious and the setting was amazing. I really hope to visit again soon.

We came for a special event to this wonderful hotel. All staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel was very clean and stylish with classical as well as modern interior, for example Dedon outdoor furniture. Need to return to have a closer look to the rooms and other areas.

Nice hotel, lovely staff But beware entertainment often very loud and if you have a sea view suite overlooking the pool you can't avoid the loud singing often just quality of kaeoke which finishes around 23:00- 23:30 every night
