I’ve stated here before and always enjoy the faculty. It’s quite beautiful with a nice pool and jacuzzi.

Lovely staff and location
Really lovely staff (one woman in particular seemed committed to not only quality service but also to making real connections with her guests while juggling food service for dinner, check ins, guest requests and more at the same time). Also, the BEST shower ever - fantasic rainfall shower head but with good water pressure and a full seal on the doors so you don't end up with a soggy bathroom floor. The location is beautiful, so a stay would be worth it just for that. Only complaints - the pillows were very flat and we only got two total for two people. And sounds traveled rather well between rooms (we were next to a family with a young child and could hear every time he was upset or excited).

8/10 Very good

Furnishing of hotel was beautiful and spotless. Had some great games on the pool table and pool was great for a swim. Bed was a disappointment (very noisy/ creaky and uncomfortable mattress that felt old), and breakfast had bananas that had gone completely black and bread that felt stale.

6/10 Good

Decent place to stay
Comfortable place in residential area of village. Has the old feel but doesn't quite deliver complete charm. Decent value for budget stay. Nice gardens. Food in restaurant at dinner was at best fair, but not worth the price compared to what we had elsewhere. Breakfast modest. But, cost was 50 euros, so you have to factor that in as a budget accommodation.

Lovely hotel on beautiful island
We really enjoyed our stay. Food was excellent with a good breakfast (would have been good if it started from 7.30am rather than 8). Very clean and smart rooms and lots of lovely outdoor space to sit and relax in. Our initial room had a shower problem but we were quickly reaccommodated into a room with a sea view so very happy with outcome. Would definitely stay again.
