  • What a gorgeous place. The rooms were perfect for our family of 5. Adults in front with amazing view. 2 kids in twin room and 1 teenager in her own room. We loved the spa and we enjoyed the outdoor table for dinner & breakfast. Just a stunning view out over sea & across road to beach. Had everything we needed. (except kids missed wifi!) We can't wait to go back.
