10/10 Exceptional

Great experience. Very friendly and helpful staff. Amazing location, design, landscaping, service and food. Highly recommend. We also booked an afternoon trip with their yacht which was excellent. The chef and sommelier at the B&G restaurant were really friendly and made a tasting dinner that night very special.

10/10 Exceptional

Absolutely beautiful grounds with fruit rrees, flowers, walking paths and spectacular views of the sea and cliffs. Great tour by reception staff on check in to show you around. Well placed pools, even a salt water heated one, and stunning views of the ocean. The staff were exceptionally helpful. Food especially breakfast buffet was delicious. Spa is really top notch. Many shops and restaurants nearby in walking distance as well as a hiking trail to a nearby town. Overall extremely relaxing experience with so many sunbeds all around to lie down and enjoy the views of the grounds while you listen to the sounds of the waves.

Private retreat
Fantastic stay! Every day we went out exploring the area we were so happy to get back to our property! Besides the beautiful grounds and multiple pools on the property, you essentially have your own private beach. In theory, I believe anyone could enjoy this beach from another entrance point, but during our 5-day stay it was uncrowded and for the most part, only accessed by other hotel guests. You felt like you had the place to yourself! The breakfast was great and our room was comfortable and spacious (though a bit dated). A lot of amenities from tennis and padle courts to beaches and pools plus ,many inviting spaces to sit and relax throughout the beautifully manicured property.

Beautiful resort! Property was stunning and rooms were clean and relaxing. The grille for lunch was great, but somewhat limited options for dinner and not much nearby the resort. Staff was extremely professional. Service by pool could have been quicker for the price. All around a nice experience!
