My husband and I stayed here for a week in September for our honeymoon and to be very honest it was the best week! We absolutely loved the resort - it is very beautiful. Our room was very spacious and had a terrace with a beach view. The staff were the most amazing people I've met! From the bar tender to the kitchen chef and manager to the room cleaners - all very friendly, open to conversation and really looked after us the entire time. One of our room cleaners (a boy who's name I cant remember unfortunately!) spend the entire evening decorating our room for us while we were out to surprise us with a room filled with rose petals, candles, a thoughtful ''enjoy your honeymoon'' message and swan shaped towels on the bed. It was the most wonderful surprise I'll never forget! Read less

The rooms are cleaned daily to a very high standard, and there is plenty of storage space for your belongings. Every room has a safe and a fantastic sea view. The food is delicious and there is a wide variety so should cater for everyone’s needs. The attention to detail is amazing, the pools are cleaned early in the morning, very quietly, the private beach is even raked each morning. We can’t recommend this place enough and we will definitely be back. Thank you to all the staff for making our stay a memorable one ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Chris and Sally Read less

The food was absolutely delicious, the interiors were beautiful. Even the music during the evenings was great, the DJ played really cool modern stuff that gave the hotel a young, chilled out feel! What really made it special though was the staff. Thnak you so much to you all - we miss you already! I've never had such an amazing experience at a hotel and each and every one of the staff members can take the credit for that. We can't wait to come back and we were very sad to leave! I honestly can't think of a negative about Paul & Virgine. We didn't expect such a personal experience and we were really touched by how well we get on with everyone and everything they did for us. Thank you so much again! Read less

We stayed here for 7 days. We had a fantastic view from our room. The food was very good. It a small resort but that was perfect for us. It was quit, and peaceful, like an adults hotel should be. There is some staff who is, autistic it think, i like the way the hotel give that people a change to work, how simple their task may be. Good work. Staff is sometimes rude when they are arguing to each other when they serve you and just ignore you dropping food or drinks at the table not saying anything. Most of them are friendly though and are going that extra mile to satisfy you. There are dogs wondering around the hotel. Staff is feeding them every day. Also feeding them pancakes and stuff while they ask guest not to feed the dogs. Most of the mornings around 5AM the dogs start to bark loud and fighting, waking you up, thanks! Entertainment is good. Sometimes live music, or dancers. We had a fantastic stay, would come here again. Read less
