Everything was beyond perfection. We were kinda complicated before arrival. We kept changing our reservation so many different times, I understand its kinda annoying, if I was in their shoes but they were still nice to us and agreed to change Everytime we phoned them. Come to the day of arrival, it was a happy meeting/feeling. we finally got the chance to meet the manager who we had always communicated with. Furthermore, Superb room with a sea view, restaurant with evening sunset view. breakfast with sea view. Friendly service. Actually, we felt at home the entire stay. In general; Happy Super Service from the top to the bottom.

Cons: Die Preise für Essen waren entsprechend, doch die Preise für Getränke im Gegensatz zu vergleichbaren Hotels völlig überhöht.
Wir hatten ein Zimmer mit Blick zum Meer, der Nachteil war die Lage direkt an der Straße, so daß es auch durch vorübergehende Leute die ganze Nacht laut war und das Schlafen beeinträchtigt hat.
