We stayed there with my husband on a romantic getaway. It was amazing - great interiors, wonderful views, sea theme everywhere. We had a very spacious room with a great view. Breakfast was very good. Just loved it!

This hotel is a dream. Very unusual, sea theme. It is right on the sea. Every room faces the sea, and you wake up every morning to the beauty of the sea and mountains. Beautiful pool. Great location. Awesome rooms with balconies. When you order a drink in the lobby area, they bring the most beautiful hors d'oeuvres to accompany... More

We spent 4 nights as part of a tour with Grand Circle Travel. Our room and balcony, as most do, had a view of the bay. Breakfast buffet was to die for and included Prosecco to go along with lovely sweets. Gorgeous art work was everywhere.

This hotel is lovely. The location is perfect, right on the sea. Each room has a balcony and a view of the pool and the sea. All public facilities are comfortable and well thought out. The breakfast buffet is great. Staff was gracious and thoughtful.

This is a really nice hotel - spotlessly clean, quirky and, having read earlier reviews, clearly benefiting from the recent change in management.

The hotel itself is very nice, and has a lovely quiet position on it's own secluded bay. The food (we only had breakfast) was of high quality, and was varied in choice. Just be sure to pre-book as part of your deal as it will set you back 36 euros each otherwise. The only real downside to this place was... More
