Positive Reviews

Amazing location right on the beach.

It’s one of the main attractions of this boutique hotel and it’s hard not to notice that it is right on the beach with stunning views of the bay. You can relax on the beach and watch the boats sail by as you sip a cool drink and order dinner at the restaurant.

Beautiful décor throughout.

The hotel décor is stylish and elegant with the restaurant coming in for particular praise. You won’t find fault with the job that they have done on refurbishing this hotel that stood empty for quite a few years before the current owners took over.

Great food all day.

Each meal that is served in the restaurant is well presented and prepared to perfection. There are many seafood based dishes to try out and even a Tapas night each week. The location by the beach somehow makes all the food taste so much better too.

Negative Reviews

Bar prices a bit high.

You don’t expect to pay five-star bar prices at a hotel in this area, but then it is a boutique hotel which probably explains the pricing system. The food is good, but some guests still feel it is a bit on the pricey side.

Not enough staff at breakfast.

The breakfast service can be a bit chaotic at times with so many people vying for a slice of toast or a cup of tea. More staff to replenish the food and perhaps offer table service would please the guests who have stayed here.
