The food was lovely and the portions were generous with the table staff helpful and polite. The cost of the reception was extremely fair and Rado worked with myself... More

Le grande mare is always a pleasure to stay at.Not just the views of vazon bay, the rooms are light and spotlessly clean. The restaurant's are great value for money and breakfast is all you would need to set you up for a busy day. If you have had a long day,just enjoy a soak in the luxurious bath and... More

My wife and I visit this place often for a meal or afternoon tea. They are never short of deals. How they can deliver so much value at a fraction of the cost boggles the mind, but they do and combine that with great service, wonderful tastes and the perfect location.
