It took us a while to locate the hotel which is certainly not anywhere close to Radda!
The setting is nice, pretty traditional houses, the landscape beautiful, the pool nothing special but can prove very welcoming on a hot long day! the rooms have a heavy village feel to it. A small semi functioning tv, an empty fridge, no glasses make the room's equipment. The wifi is free but reception works only "outside the rooms" as we were told and discovered! The bathrooms are small with a basic shower and decent water pressure.
The hotel's wine reception/ tasting area and restaurant are beautiful, with nice views and the breakfast pretty decent (though they charge extra for any eggs and second coffee!!).
The service needs improvement. We were told we had to leave next day as it was full ( which was ok as we did not have a reservation), then suddenly they had, then we had to move rooms but no one came help carry our luggages all the numerous steps and paths..
At check they eventually ruined our holiday by ....not returning our passports.... Which we discovered 250km later and missed our flights. They didn't offer to meet us half way and after driving all they way back to get them, they graciously offered us a whole bottle of...WATER!
( what happened to their great wine???!)
