Grand week out
Greeted by a Canadian front of house man who showed us round and then to our room - really nice guy. Made you feel less anxious in a place that could be intimidating. Room very good, sea view even though overlooking Victoria park; walk in shower. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate with biscuits available in room and on several occasion there was a knock on the door in the evening to see if you had run out of beverages since room maintenance. Four places to eat in the hotel Tassili Michelin three star tasting menu - daren't look at the prices. Victoria's; selectable set price menu or a la carte - never fully booked. The Champagne lounge (sea views) with reasonably priced meals though not a wide selection , Champagne on the other hand by the bucket load if you are prepared to pay! Open air bar serving tapas at the front of the hotel again sea views. Breakfast (in Victoria's) was worth getting up for; Cereals fruits,/fruit juices, Yogurts, smoothies, croissants etc English cooked breakfast on self serve or you could order your own preference. Always someone around to assist if needed. Spa suite very good with pool, sauna, steam room, jaccuzzi though the latter was closed for three days. Fully equipped Gym should you be that energetic. Massage and facials etc available at extra cost.
Hotel just down road from Bus station which will get you almost anywhere on the island for £2 per adult great value and beats a hire car any day
