This fabulous little boutique hotel deserves much praise. Elegantly designed with a view of the sea wherever you stand in the rooms, this little hotel has the 'wow' factor. This is a little retreat to get away from the crowds and if you're looking for big hotel entertainment then you won't find it here. Here you'll find a guy at... More

This is an intimate hotel in that it only has 14 rooms. The decor is contemporary zen, very stylish. The location is wonderful, the swimming off the hotel great.

We spent a night at this hotel for Valentine week-end. The room was spacious and very nice & luxurious and food excellent. However for a 5 star resort, we were disappointed with the swimming pool which had insects floating and did not appear clean. Also, the hotel did not have basic facilities for kids such as a high chair (may... More
