    Superb property, on the sea front. Excellent restaurants and bars. What takes it to the very highest level is the staff, who are clearly very proud of their hotel. From the people on the gate, lift attendants, security, reception, room servicing staff as well as the first-class restaurant staff, everyone was friendly, attentive and responsive. We had a number of small requests which were met promptly and efficiently. Only the hotel cat appeared somewhat aloof! It all makes for a great experience.

    Perfect location ... wonderful and friendly service. Food is world class and breakfast is out of this world. The spa is amazing and well designed.

    Only the monkeys are a nuisance but that is nature
