The website is beautiful so when you get there you expect to find that. It was not that at all....except for the garden which is magnificent.

Non-flexible and bureaucratic mannered staff. Not enough outside dinner tables so sometimes we had to eat dinner inside. No Ocean View even though the room booking said "facing ocean". Shower and room in poor standard. Nearby beaches over crowded.
