We had the most beautiful room, which was serviced daily, we asked the hotel for a room close to the front, which they very kindly obliged with. Yes the hotel is built into...

We were there for the weekend organized by the company. The resort is beautiful. The rooms included a bedroom and living room and a balcony. wonderful view of the sea and surroundings. The rooms are over the hill so it was a little difficult every time to climb all the stairs up to the room. Rooms very clean and tidy....
