We have just returned from our second trip to Lighthouse and definitely not the last. It is, quite simply, the best hotel we have found. Please remember that this hotel was built around the sea and the rocks, it is the whole point of it's beauty, the fact that it is so in tune with nature. It is a bit silly therefore to expect it to be hermetically sealed.
The food and drink is more than 5 star quality and the spa and beach pool are again the best we have found.
The bed and pillows are, again, at least 5 star quality, only to be beaten by Ritz quality bedding.
This hotel is an oasis, a sanctuary and a place that you will want to retun to. If, however, you are looking for a carpeted hotel with kareoke and beer for breakfast, you are probably better off sticking to all inclusive Spain. This is hotel that is loved and appreciated by experienced travellers and I hope they keep it up. By the way, the internet room is very damp, but the sun was shining, the sea was blue, it didn't really matter.
