Fabulous setting, huge garden, gorgeous unspoilt beach. Excellent security and superb staff, all friendly and professional. A large hotel which was nearly full but not once did it feel other than quiet, relaxing and spacious. Sun beds for all, lovely pool. Railway to rear.

Im being charged to write this review because this hotel charges for wifi. To be clear, the hotel gives everyone the ability to connect two devices for free after which you have to pay for the premium package. Which family with kids in 2016 has just two devices! Nothing annoys travellers more than having to pay for internet access! Come...

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel as well as all amenities included there. We definitely loved the pool. The only negative point to note was bad high-humidity smell in our room. For 350$ per night, this point was surprising. This problem was partially addressed with air freshener.
