This hotel was almost fantastic but just missed the mark in a few small ways which just took the edge off our enjoyment.
The hotel was having building work carried out during June and when we arrived on July 1st things were not quite finished. This did not really affect us much but we think that is why the mood of the place was not completely relaxed, the staff seemed harried and ill at ease which obviously passed on to us.
We were put in a beautiful room with it's own (very cold) pool and perfect privacy. However the romance of paired outdoor showers faded once it got dark, and a bit chilly. There was no bath or shower indoors so we had to rev ourselves up to dive outside to wash. The water pressure and heat was not quite enough to make it comfortable.
The other odd thing was that we had no way to contact the main hotel, 5 minutes walk away. A bit of a pain when the power goes off and we were unsure what was going on, or if you wanted to check meal times. The room also had no info on the hotels facilities, we never did find out whether the sauna and massage suite was operational, or local attractions. This was the first hotel we came across that charged for internet access.
We enjoyed the food, it was a very high standard.
