    We stayed here as part of our honeymoon and had a good stay. The decor is beautiful and attention to detail impressive. The view from the balcony was stunning too. Whilst we enjoyed it the downside is that the rooms are small and quite noisy....More

    Amazingly well located with great view of the coast. Comfortable rooms, good shower, and very welcoming common areas (including a deck and a pool). Breakfast was also good and really friendly staff. I wish i could stayed longer.
