This gorgeous hotel has pretty much everything you could wish for: Great position about 30 minutes walk down into town. (I do mean down and confess we always took a taxi back, but that cost never more than 6 euros). The staff are really friendly: Ask Rosie for her restaurant recommendations which were all excellent. The rooms are large, with seating areas and balconies. Our ground floor room had a view over the lovely garden. I guess higher up there may be sea views. We didn't use the indoor pool as the outdoor one was heated. There were always enough sunbeds and the pool area is sheltered which was useful as the weather was changeable.
Breakfast is plentiful, fresh and there is a very good selection, especially of fruit. We didn't eat in the restaurant, but did have tea and cake in the bar area. The bar is lovely and on a couple of evenings there is a really good pianist. We also had a spa treatment. The happy hour deal was excellent and meant I had a hot stone massage for 36 euros. Bliss!
I would definitely return to this wonderful hotel.
