Having our 1st holiday without the children we were looking for peace and relaxation, this is the place to be. Was met at the airport by a taxi driver, the driver was lovely but the vehicle in England would not have been legal. Visually the hotel look stunning even at night. The reception staff were very welcoming and informative, our bags were taken to our room to give us time to have food before the restaurant closed.
The room was nice with a great bathroom, we had amazing see view (not enough hangers in wardrobe).Welcome information was given to us from the taxi man, but the time to meet rep the next day was put into the flight time so we never met, we spoke to him by phone to order a car he did apologise for the mix up, but never saw him for the duration of the holiday, anything we needed to know we asked either reception or waiters
Food at all restaurant was of good standard and we enjoyed it all.
Staff serving either at breakfast/bar/evening meal were always attentive and100% good service.
What we couldn't understand there were so many men in Black suits who seemed to be everywhere, we actually named them a (The Suits), they made you slightly uncomfortable ,I understand they need to keep a standard, but I felt that there were too many eyes, this felt intimidating for us and the staff looked extremely uncomfortable, also at times they could have help with the customers ,and maybe acknowledged the customers.
Drinks quite expensive at hotel, outside much cheaper.
Coffee and tea in room would be nice.
The old town is a good place to visit easy walking distance. A car is essential if you want to visit the amazing beaches.
Would visit again
