Let me state, straight away, that there is nothing fundamentally wrong with this hotel, it is clean and comfortable and the staff, on the whole, are pleasant and accommodating. It is however suffering from delusions of grandeur. I know ratings differ from country to country, but in no way does it qualify for four stars. As for being a resort,... More

Stayed here for a week in May and had a wonderfully relaxing time. The food was tasty and the breakfast filling. The weather in May was perfect for two Scottish lassies and the pool was cool but well maintained. Hope to return again.

If you love stylish boutique hotels based in the quietest countryside close to a deserted beach, then this is for you. Everything was of the very highest quality and style, and yet so relaxing and peaceful. Family owned, the care taken with not only the design and cleanliness, but in meeting our every need, was evident from the minute we... More

A very nice place to stay in a quiet part of the island and just a short walk to the sea front where you'll find a few tavernas and bars. The hotel is very relaxing with a nice bar, the drink prices are around the same as the uk. There is a free to use gym but the spa is... More

This hotel is wonderful. My daughter and I have just returned from a very relaxing week's holiday. Our twin room was extremely comfortable with a spotlessly clean bathroom with power shower.
