A Very Nice Place, Cozy Ambience, Very serene and trouble free. The bar area and the pool are nice, the only issue is that that water is a bit salty, but that cannot be helped I think as it is near to the sea. other than that it is a lovely place to spend some quiet evenings.

The rooms and the outside patio are great. The pool is well kept and large enough. Rather quiet pool and bar , and the food is less than desirable. However they are located right next to one of the best resturants in town. The service and staff are excellent.
