Exceptional 10.0
Highly recommended
We were absolutely spoilt by the hotel staff. The service was fantastic and little personal touches every day added to the overall experience. The food was great. Free breakfast had a great selection of freshly prepared dishes. Lots of space around the pool. 2min walk to the beach, 10min walk along the beach to a few restaurants, ATM, a cafe. A hidden gem in a perfect location!
