The word Boutique conjures up images of a small, beautifully designed hotel with a unique and individual feel. This hotel has none of that. It's a large hotel that caters for coach trips and feels like any other similar hotel around the world. That's not necessary a problem but people should be aware of this.
The hotel is exceptionally clean, the rooms are big, the grounds are lovely and the pool is nice and big. It's also right on the beach with loungers available for hotel guests. We ate a few times at the pool bar and the food was exceptional. Breakfast was extensive with a large choice.
It is out of town but they have a free shuttle bus which runs every couple of hours. If you want to go into town outside of these times they also offer a taxi service (although you will need to pay for this).
The only negatives would be the low standard of English amongst the staff (they simply didn't understand the most basic of questions). Considering the vast majority of guests were English or Australian this needs to be improved. Also as many other people have pointed out if you get a room on the ground floor it has large, floor to ceiling windows with no net curtains. Our room was a few meters away from the pool so we ended up having to keep the curtains closed the whole time as people could see straight in. My advice would be to request an upper floor room.
One final point would be about the spa. I went to have nail polish reapplied and the girl who did this, although lovely, clearly wasn't trained and I could have done this better myself. There was no undercoat or topcoat and the polish was full of air bubbles and was smudged.
