Everything perfect.... location, hosts and room. Bonus of a kitchen is really handy. Bear in mind no lift but we were in room 2 so only up one flight. We will return 😍

Feel at home by the beach.
WOW! What a stunning hotel! It felt like we were in our own apartment home right by the sea. We stayed for four nights in this luxurious hotel. It was a blessing having a kitchen, allowing us to make our own meals and therefore preventing us from spending a fortune on meals at restaurants. Unfortunately, there wasn't a microwave, just a hob, but we didn't need it so didn't bother asking for one. We wanted a bathroom with a bath and that is what we got, but it was disappointing that the shower didn't work properly, it came out more of a leak rather than a spray, but again, we prefer having baths so we didn't mind at all. This hotel was definitely the best hotel we've stayed in, and comfort isn't a strong enough word of how we felt about this place. This was home to us for four nights, and we so did not want to leave. We'll be back, for sure.
