We really loved our stay at this lovely hotel. The staff were very friendly, the room had stunning views over the lagoon and sea! Breakfast was lovely. Only thoughts are that the carpets in passages are really getting very tired! The bathroom can also do with a bit of an update! The shower door opens into another door and you cannot get to the towel heater behind the shower door once in the shower! Architects fault not the hotel staff though! Also just an idea, but the other Relais and Chateaux establishments we visited this past year all had a NESPRESSO machine in the room and that is really a good idea especially during the winter months! Also a beach bag (complimentary- that could advertise the hotel!) seems to be the norm elsewhere! We would definitely come back though!
