This is one of the best hotels in which I have ever stayed. Rated five star (should be 5* de luxe!) it offers the very best in accomadation, service and food. Free high speed wifi is available in room (top marks for this - it should be standard everywhere!) the staff are wonderful and I cannot recommend it highly enough. We have stayed here for five days and each day has been a pleasure. Not cheap but worth every cent for a very special visit. Also has a pool and jacuzzi, beauty shop and hairdresser. There are only two downsides, one was the prices charged in the beauty shop which I believe is a separate entity from the hotel. To have her nails styled and repainted my wife was charged over £75 and the task took almost three hours. In Spain she has this done in less than an hour for just £12. I think this is a total rip off! If you need a beauty treatment I would recommend you try elsewhere. Caveat emptor.
The second is that the hotel is situated at the top of a very steep hill and up numerous steps. not a problem if you are young and fit but if like me you are in a wheelchair quite a large problem. There is a second entrance which is currently closed for renovation which would help a bit when reopened but you still need to go up the hill. If you are older or infirm I would recommend a taxi.
