When I booked this for our first break away without our small children in nearly 6 years, I was a little worried having read some of the previous reviews. I needn't have been. Whatever problems they had before (staff etc.), they have obviously taken everything on board and ironed out every single niggle, because the place is complete and utter perfection. The staff were fantastic and not at all 'in your face' with it - just very professional. We have stayed all over the world in some beautiful hotels, but this is now, by far, the best and at the top of our list (well, perhaps along with La Locanda in Radda in Chianti). Okay, so we were given, in my view, the best room in the hotel (we were upgraded without even being asked to be). It helps when you wake up in the morning, open the shutters and see the waves crashing against the rocks right in front of you and watch the fishermen bringing in their catch of crabs etc. ready for your incredible meal in the evening! We're not keen on large, chain hotels with that, well, what can I say, 'Footballer's Wives' touch. We prefer low key, hidden away, simple but elegant, tasteful, a little extravagant (expensive toiletries, fabulous food and wine etc.) places to stay, in private, tucked away locations - this was it. Despite the fact that it was raining, I went for a walk along the coastal path right by the hotel, and it was simply breathtaking. We left, after just two days, feeling as if we had experienced the ultimate in relaxation in the most exquisite form. Words to describe the whole experience - stunning, romantic, tranquil spot with excellent attention to detail, First Class in every way.
