Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. It is unfortunate that you had such an experience. Just to clarify: We do not serve dinner on the 1st floor as it is our breakfast area and is used at times for private functions. Secondly, we serve dinner on the ground floor until 22:00 at night, 7 days a week, 365 days...

We loved our suite. It was huge, and like all the rooms, overlooked the Indian Ocean. Fantastic sunrises! But, the hotel is a bit faded and our suite smelled pretty moldy. They advertised having internet but it was essentially non-existent (The hotel staff repeatedly said, "they're coming to look at it.") The restaurant provided an o.k. breakfast; nothing special, but...

We stayed in a family room and every night they made the bed for our son and cleaned the room every morning when we went for breakfast. Therefore it was always clean and we had more space. I enjoyed the balcony with its 110% view. We will definitely be back. Real value for money and the breakfast was also great.

From the moment we walked in the service was friendly and efficient. It is relaxing to sit on the balcony of the hotel room and look at the beach & sea. The rooms are spacious and well-taken care off. The first night we ordered room service and the food was excellent, especially the calamari (soft, tender & tasty). The breakfast...

We booked via a Groupon Special and was worried about the level of this 3 star hotel but we received excellent value for money and their local restaurant Art Cafe provided great food and value for money. Great place to stay and very friendly staff. We will go back anytime.
