We stayed 3 nights in the Garden Suite and this provided a wonderful conclusion to our holiday. The room was enormous with its own patio and sunbathing area. Everything was spotlessly clean and the staff very helpful. Breakfast by the pool made a good start to the day and the ability to have a light lunch was also a great...
