We stayed here for four nights and overall we were impressed, but also a bit disappointed! Our room, overlooked the garden and had mezzanine floor where my daughters slept - air conditioning was very efficient - too efficient at times as we were cold downstairs but girls still v warm upstairs! We ate two meals in the restaurant - a seafood barbecue which was divine and meal off normal menu that was very good. Both meals and service were very good, but pricey! We were given a glass of prosecca on entering restaurant and a glass of limoncello at end of meal at no charge - the waiting staff were lovely - especially Alyssa who went out of her way to make sure that our meal and experience in restaurant and bar was exceptional!
The minor disappointments were that we had ants in our room and faulty shower, which the staff dealt with immediately but not what we expected in such an establishment, and also we were disappointed with reception staff on our last day - violent thunderstorms and torrential rain soaked us to the skin, but reception staff were not very forthcoming to our request for somewhere to get changed (we had already checked out and were returning to collect our luggage before going to airport) - we ended up travelling home in wet clothes!
Overall we would recommend this hotel and would stay again, but not with our daughters as it is a little far out an there are no decent restaurants close by that were open!
