    Absolutely amazing hotel! After a 2.5 drive, it was lovely to be greeted by the friendly staff, who promptly offered us glasses of Prosecco. As it is the off season, most of the town was shut down. However, we were completely happy to sit at the gorgeous hotel bar, over looking the stunning beach.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Beautiful hotel with amazing views of the sea. The room was well appointed and comfortable. Great bathroom. The staff was very attentive and went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay. The waiters in the restaurant were great. Only downside is that the music from the beach can be loud at night.

  • 6.0.Good

    Welcoming, efficient and clean, but there is no beach and the rooftop pool is really tiny, being only about 5 metres long. The public beach is staggeringly crowded, and the "lido" beaches are very, very noisy with shatteringly loud music. Overall I wouldn't recommend this as a place to stay despite the great staff and good food.

    Close to beach

    It was slightly rough around the edges both in the building itself and the staff. The dining room is hideously noisy which is particularly exacerbated by staff clattering plates.

    Read your confirmation

    Main Hotel was excellent but we were given a room in the "Dependency: and we were not pleased with it. We were not aware of the fact that it said "Annex" on our confirmation as we didn't read it thoroughly. Although very clean, the room was very small and dark and not in the same category as the rooms in the main hotel. We felt we grossly overpaid for this type of accommodation. The staff were very friendly and very helpful and the amenities in the main hotel were wonderful. We enjoyed many excellent meals at the restaurant.

    Everything was wonderful!, Great location and only steps to beach. Beware when you select room type...I was informed when I got to hotel that I was in annex room (down the street) and had to pay a premium to upgrade to hotel room. It was a bit costly but we got a wonderful ocean view room with balcony. Only drawback was that the town pretty much shut down for summer on Sept 17. Thus only a handful of restaurants remained open (minimal selection). Beautiful little beach town. Will definitely return!
