We stayed here for two weeks in March having booked the hotel before it even opened.
After a few worrying reviews to start with we did wonder if we had done the right thing but let me assure you,we did.
The hotel is wonderful throughout,from the happy courteous staff,wonderful furnishings to the amazing infinity pool.
Good food selection for breakfast,though as mentioned in a previous review,coffee / tea service was a bit patchy at times.
Only ate in the hotel in evening on our first night which was good,though didnt return as food / drinks are much cheaper in the restaurants in the village.
On this subject we would definately recommend 'Martins Corner' & 'King Crab' as our favourites,though we didnt have a bad meal once in the fortnight anywhere else.
Good prompt beach shuttle service from the hotel,& when your'e ready to come back the hotel security guy just radio's through & within five minutes you're picked up again.
The only moan would be about sun bed availibility around the pool at times,there seemed to be certain people on our second week who would sit on them for maybe an hour or so in the morning,leave a book on them & disappear all day,to return about 5ish & re-use them ! It would be good if the towel guys took more notice of this and removed personal items so others could use them when they wished.
However,this was a stunning hotel & we wouldnt hesitate to recommend to anyone else.
P.S. I hope Tony & Queenie found the energy to walk the beach to Colva one evening, ( you know who you are ! ) Highly recommended by the way to all others.
