    Hochklassig in allen Belangen

    Sehr persönliches, kleines Luxus Hotel. Freundliches Personal, immer hilfsbereit, super Aussicht mit Palmen, einmalige Sonnenuntergänge, Essen wie erwartet überragend, tolle, grosszügige Grün-anlagen um den Pool. Einzige kleine Kritik:EUR 27.50 für einen Aperol-Spritz am Pool scheint mit doch etwas gar teuer zu sein!

    Cobra muito caro pelo serviço que oferece. O local se parece mais com um restaurante que possui quartos do que com um hotel. Não recomendo.
