Luxury break in great location
You need a GPS or the instructions to find the hotel as the road signs for the hotel appear randomly along the route and not at each turn. One arrival you feel as though you have stepped back to a gentler time. The whole feel is spacious. Although the reception desk is small it is set in a large open space. The welcome was warm and friendly showing us to the room whilst the cases were taken up by a separate route. The room which had a terrace was light an spacious. The bathroom was well appointed with a separate walk in shower. Breakfasts were well catered with plenty of variety. We ate in the Gaslight Grill on a couple of occasions and the food was excellent both times. On one of the nights the meals were served outside on the terrace which was particularly romantic. We struggled to come up with an adequate word to describe the service and I settled for measured. They don't rush but not in a slacker sort of way more of it is unseemly to be seen dashing. They are are attentive and helpful. The pool area is very impressive with an aspect over the bay with a very refreshing salt water pool with plenty of sunbeds and shade. All in all we have a very relaxing break there.

Total relaxation? This is the place to go
Arriving at the hotel sets the scene for a great stay. Beach mercy to the hotel, amazing properties and a friendly security guard in a hut to finish it off. The hotel itself is just wow, with it capturing very period features and furniture,but with them looking like they were made last week. It's an extremely well looked after place and the staff were all excellent. Great pool to sit around and you even get a great view of the coast from your elevated position. We went or of season, so certainly foot good value and not people around. The only down side were the guests to be honest. A bit stuffy ans wanting to look their best all the time... It's a holiday people! It was interesting also to see several elderly gentlemen who had obviously brought along their daughters to enjoy the holiday with them. One man had brought two of his daughters... How nice :)
