Fantastic”
Went with my girlfriends. Absolutely loved the swim-up rooms which opened up to the pool and you could see the sea in the distance. Absolutely amazing!

Excellent”
The hotel couldn't be faulted on location. It was almost comical trying to get a drink from the Der Cafe, we tried to bribe them with tips but even that didn't work, we had to walk into the bar every time we'd wanted a drink. Nor sure what's going on there, but it didn't spoil our stay. Also there are a couple of good restaurants right opposite the hotel front gate.

Perfect location ”
Pros - Great location and wonderful staff. Sunset views are uninterrupted and the beach is very clean. Cons - food often cold as it is all cooked in the main kitchen and walked over to the other 2 restaurants. Rooms are quite expensive

Beach beach beach ”
With a private beach and the location is perfect for relaxing and chilling. The staff is a little lost and cleanliness can be better. However the beautiful beach and the location makes up for what it lacks.

great property badly in need of renovation ”
fantastic property in a great location. the beach access made it totally worth it! however the property has seen better days. staff were not very helpful. some of the issues were: 1. Internet did not work in both the rooms. staff did not bother despite complaining 2. the kettle they provided was leaking 3. the shower was a disaster. Either you froze or were scalded. it was impossible for you to take a shower 4. there was no shelf to keep your toiletries in the shower area. one had to keep it on the floor. very uncomfortable we did not expect this from a 5 star property
