It is hard to describe our delight at stepping out of a world where everything has to be the fastest, newly re-branded, re-modelled, re-launched, face-lifted, the latest, the newest, the flash-est, the most expensive, cutting-edge, High-Tech, all aimed at the busy and discerning modern couple, it was simply a delight to be totally at home and treated as it we...

Stayed at this hotel for six nights with my daughter, a wonderful surprise holiday for me, fulfilling a long-time dream. The hotel, grounds and setting are delightful. Had a beautiful room (526), which had its own terrace, with sea view, opening onto immaculate garden areas. The decoration, furnishings, lounges, cocktail bar, breakfast room, pools and grounds are all superb. Loved... More

The public rooms are magnificent and to sit in the cocktail bar in the evening evokes a dream of yesteryears. The Palace is all a 5* hotel should be and offers excellent food with a... More

The TV needs to be updated to a larger one but perhaps since room is small, a larger one may seem out of place. Buffet breakfast was sumptuous with an array of exotic fruits... More
