10/10 Exceptional

The hotel was clean and beautiful with amazing views. My only issue was the private pool wasnt heated and i went later in the season when it would get cold at night. So the water would be freezing maybe it doesnt make a difference if you go in june or july. Outside of that the hotel was amazing and i highly recommend

Nous avons passé un agréable Séjour dans l’hôtel. Les chambres sont spacieuses et d’un design moderne. La piscine est propre et bien entretenue avec une vue magnifique sur la mer donnant l’impression d’une infinity pool. Le personnel est très sympathique et le petit-déjeuner est très bon avec des produits locaux frais. Un petit reproche néanmoins pour le jus d’orange qui n’est pas pressé. Dommage pour une ile connue pour ses oranges délicieuses et pour un hôtel de tel standing. :-( Je recommande cet hôtel à 1000%.

Ganz besondere Unterkunft! Das Hotel ist super modern und gepflegt. Wir haben ein Zimmer mit angrenzendem Pool gebucht und hatten dadurch einen spektakulären Ausblick auf die Anlage und das Meer. Obwohl wir unser Zimmer sehr geliebt haben, haben wir den Großteil des Urlaubs an dem Gemeinschaftspool verbracht. Die Bewirtung an der Liege - zu erschwinglichen Preisen - und der lifeguard, der steht’s bemüht ist für ausreichend Schatten/Sonne und trockene Böden zu sorgen, runden das Urlaubsfeeling ab. Möchte man die Sonne dennoch lieber am Strand genießen, ist dieser auch nur 2 Gehminuten von dem Hotel entfernt. Dort findet man neben Strand auch viele Kioske, Cafés und Restaurants die sich entlang der Promenade erstrecken und preiswerte Leckereien anbieten. Ein großes Lob muss man dem Mitarbeiter*innen des Blue Elephants aussprechen. Diese waren aufmerksam, freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wie man dem Text eventuell entnehmen kann - wir haben es geliebt und können es reinen Herzens weiterempfehlen.
