This is a small boutique hotel right on Dutchies beach. It has an absolutely stunning outlook just steps away from direct access to the beach. The rooms are very spacious with quality fittings and fixtures including kitchen and laundry for longer stays. We were shown around our room and instructed on how to use some of the things including the Nespresso coffee machine by a very welcoming receptionist. It's just a 10 minute walk into the Marina which is handy given the limited parking options in town. The 25m heated pool is lovely and has a large spa attached. While the bed is comfy the pillows are unfortunately large and hard. There are no alternatives which for a 5 star is a gap (perhaps bring your own in case). I agree also with the service noted by some other reviews. I think the idea is to leave you in peace but again for 5 star (and the very high price) daily servicing is not automatic and when requested is not 100%. The excellent rating is for the beautiful apartment and absolutely stunning location when I compare to our other hotels. If the service was stepped up a notch or two, then it would truly be 5 star.
