I had an amazing experience. Guest room was absolutely charming with an understated modern decor and a majestic view of the sea.I would find myself transported into a magical place as i stood at the balcony peering into the horizon. The food was aesthetically presented and quality was immediately felt as you took the first bite out of each meal.... More

We where disappointed by small swimming pool and small breakfast selection. It is located on a steep hill. Other than that the hotel was nice but view from balcony was average . But reception area was lovely. But upgrade to better room occurred.

The best thing about this hotel is the location. The hill climb back up from the town was a good way to work off a too large breakfast. The staff were lovely, as was the pool and swim up bar. We ate in the restaurant one night. The food was lovely but we were chased away by a mosquito frenzy.... More
