Positive Reviews

Beautiful rooms

Stunning rooms with fantastic views and with many guests saying how much they loved their elegant bathrooms, it’s easy to see why this hotel is so popular It’s also why many guests have promised to revisit in the near future.

Lots of local flavour nearby

You can breakfast in the hotel every morning and then sample the local flavour in the village for lunch and dinner There are so many local restaurants and dishes to sample, it’s a food lover’s paradise A great place to visit if you love fresh sea food.

Amazing staff are so helpful

Guests loved the staff so much at this hotel that they were very sad to leave They did their best to make each guest feel at home and welcomed them with genuine smiles The service in the restaurant is outstanding with glasses constantly being refilled.

Negative Reviews

Limited menu choice

Some guests ate a lot in the local village as the menus in both of the hotel restaurants were a little limited The food was delicious, but they would rather have more choice, especially if planning to eat there for a number of meals.

Rules cannot be bent at all

Rules are made for a reason, but not allowing guests to bring a bottle of water bought at the pool up to their room is a bit strange It made them feel like the hotel wanted them to purchase other drinks Unusual practice for a five-star hotel.

Not Five-star

According to some, this hotel is three star at the most It advertises many facilities which are all present, but the attitude of the staff towards their use of these facilities was quite unfriendly They felt the hotel was definitely over-priced for such service.
