What can I say that has not already been said? What a fantastic hotel! Great location (as stated 2 miles from the beach, 4 miles from the town) for people who wish to relax and get away from it all. Suzanna was exceptional from day 1! We were booked into a room originally, however I asked if we could be... More

The hotel and grounds are outstanding but the best thing about the holiday was the exceptionally high quality of the staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

We booked our trip through Secret Escapes and were not entirely sure what we would be getting despite having a brief look on tripadvisor. Well we couldn’t be more pleased with the result. The welcome we received on our arrival was an upgrade to a villa, as they noticed we were a family of 4 and thought it would better... More
