Excellent service and hotel. The staff is there for you.

I wanted one. I asked the restaurant manager, Jean-Paul, about purchasing one from the hotel. He thanked me for...

The staff at Villa Cora couldn't have been more helpful from initial booking of the hotel and a few extras through to departure. The service is that of a great boutique hotel where you are personally greeted and advice offered but the familiarity is comforting and not over-bearing. The facilities are first class with an excellent spa, restaurant and pool...
