Nice sized bathroom and a kitchenette stocked with items at a very good price that we might have had to go out and buy. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, and served on a beautiful covered terrace next to the pool. Added plus was the care and...

Cosy and friendly, the staff feel like family attending your every need. My room was cleaned daily and neutrally decorated with a very large bathroom. Breakfast was tailored to whatever I fancied and when I asked for something they didn't have, they got it for the next day?! Fantastic place, fantastic staff.....I could easily live there!
