          Great staff, very helpfull, great food and service. Small niggly things like safe not set up with no batteries fitted, side light bed switches did not work, had to turn off from plug, no bikes available, no table and chairs on balconies, record player in communal room not working, would seem maintenace of these small things needs more attention. Would still recommend based on lovely friendly staff and service. I would say management need to make sure the little things are attended to.

          We stayed in the Presidential Suite, which was enormous, with a large, private terrace and jacuzzi. It was a beautiful room, with views over both the coast and hills. There are large fold-back doors, giving the best of the views and the breeze. The hotel is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. We were also delighted that there are no predators, so you can walk or cycle around everywhere. We stayed for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. Owners and staff were great too... nothing too much trouble! Thank you for a perfect break.
