Our room was nice and our beds were nicely made with fresh flowers on the top of them (a special thanks to Farnel). Breakfast was diversified and you could...

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights for my husbands birthday. The manager met us on arrival and gave us a celebratory bottle of wine. The rooms were spacious and well kept. The pool area was nice- although there were a lack of towels some days but this was not a problem. The beach is totally natural- meaning seaweed...

The hotel deserves mention when the Front Desk is manned by Ali 'Ikemefuna' - the result was end to end quality service throughout the stay, seeing to your well-being from start to finish. This allowed for a fitting balance between rest and relaxation and adventure to be obtained. Undoubtedly the best located hotel in terms of accessing the pristine non-rocky...
