A unique 4-star hotel, quirky in appearance with artistic decor and twee furnishings. Vast grounds display more character than most, and although pools are smaller than average there is direct access to the attractive sandy beach.
Some distance from the main resort, a few amenities are close by along with regular public transport links. Suitable for all age groups and those looking for a property which is slightly different from the norm, with fewer facilities than comparable properties, but more character.
Accessed through a discreet entrance, the main building is accompanied by 3 bungalow blocks. Built in a Venetian style and painted in rustic shades with deep yellows and pinks, the archway features add extra character. All rooms have reasonably sized balconies or terraces with concrete or ornate iron frontages.
