This hotel is just the right size to not feel overwhelmed by too many people. The option of a quiet pool is definitely a plus, the staff ensure quiet is what you get. Villas are great, staff are exceptional, nothing is too much trouble. You...More

We went last week in Sept beginning of Oct. It did rain quite a bit and some days it rained for the whole day. The sea is quite rough and always has the red flag up so snorkelling is not really an option here.
