Had an excellent time away at this resort. The views and location is amazing. Great customer services from the ever polite staff. Nonetheless, the resort can do with a cash machine as some services only take cash payments.

I visited here with my 2 sisters for my 50th birthday in 2016. We upgraded to private family bungalow, breathtaking views as promised .. lots and lots of steps up to restaurant and down to beach, which was fine by us as it kept us fit through out the week.

We loved our short stay at this hotel. We booked a family room and were pleasantly surprised by its size. We had two separate bedrooms and bathrooms and a huge balcony overlooking the sea and lovely pool below. There is lots of walking, but with the great food, we enjoyed the exercise. The hotel is built right into the cliffs....

Not really 'young' guests, rather pushy 'GO's' and you need to pay for extra's like a chair at the beach, orange juice and other drinks. Isolated hotel, it is difficult to discover the neighborhood without taxi or car.

The staff was not very helpful but the hotel is beautiful with wonderful food. The views and beaches are stunning. The room is basic but adequate. The common area are very pretty.
