The food was of good variety with a few themed evenings contributing to the variety. The terrace of the main restaurant is fantastic. The prices of the drinks as...

My wife and I visited the hotel late in September. The hotel was opened during 1984 and has 148 bedrooms. It is in a beautiful location on a hill top overlooking the sea. The view from many rooms is spectacular. The hotel grounds are quite extensive and there is a footpath down to a small private beach. Because it is...

The best thing about the Hotel was the amazing views and the Spa which is managed by a 3rd party. All else was average. Room old and in need of renovation, food average and not easily determined if vegetarian or not, service apart from one person at breakfast less than average. The pool and beach area needs refurbishment as in...
