I love this hotel, rooms are very nicely appointed and bathrooms very modern, lovely sea view balconies on all rooms and the best part is the staff - every single person seemed to be genuinely interested in getting everything to our liking and helping us out, even to the extent of waiting by my car door with an umbrella when I came into the car park in torrential rain. Beds were really comfortable, everything spotlessly clean and the service first class.
I can't give it 5 stars because the 'restaurant' isn't very good, the chairs not very comfortable and the food only passable (although the bar food and the buffet breakfast are great and the bar area is comfortable and cosy). There's no reason the kitchen can't improve on this, if they can do good bar food that comes from the same kitchen. Also in September the restaurant can get very cold and draughty from the huge doors to the patio that are constantly being opened - not a problem in midsummer though I'm sure! If you stay here, eat out for full meals, the island is full of really good restaurants anyway you wouldn't want to waste your stay eating in just one however good it was, so it isn't a major issue. It wouldn't prevent me from staying here again.
Be warned of something the hotel can't fix and is a consequence of the superb view; the access to the hotel drive is via a 180 degree turn off a steep hill and the drive has a sheer drop on one side, then the car park is tiny. Not recommended for nervous drivers in hire cars!
