We stayed a week here and really enjoyed the experience. The level of service is high, helped by the fact that there are only six rooms (small bungalows) and the efficient hand of the German owner, Michael, could be felt in a good way. The food was excellent - a combination of very fresh ingredients and dishes that were not... More

The only saving grace for this hotel is that the staff try hard and the location but every thing else was a nightmare or below standards. The food was substandard quality, we had to decide what we wanted to for the next meal directly after finishing one, the rooms were not maintained, our sheets were old ( with holes) and... More

Stayed at 'Anna' for a week after Christmas, it was fantastic - so glad I made the choice to book this hotel! Despite there being 4 of us sharing the Villa, the two rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated. Each room had a separate AC unit so we could set it to different settings depending on the person. The bathroom... More

We've been here for a few days (staying for 1 week) and are amazed by this isolated and beautiful place, only 5 rooms each has its own area, by the beautiful beach, and it seems like they thought about Everything here!!! Quite amazing. Excellent service, kind staff and great food! Wow!
