    Fabulous

    I liked very much the amazing location on the cliff and with direct access to the sea. The lunch buffet selection of the restaurant located at the beach club was amazing...especially the desserts made by the chef. I also appreciated a lot that we were allowed to check out very late without extra fees.

    This is not a 5 stars hotel...especially when it comes to design and services. I would give it 4 stars. We were not told that we had to pay 60 EURO extra for the beach club access and fitness. The guys at the beach club (lifeguards) were vigilent just to take your room number, but not at all with offering services and watching for people swiming in the sea. The sport bar by the beach offered a nice selection of fresh juices and cocktail, but there was nobody to serve them to your sun bed...if you want something from the bar you need to go yourself to order it....definetly not a 5 stars hotel!

    Nothing. We left after one day and moved to another hotel.

    The hotel did not live up to its 5 star rating. It was noisy. The breakfast room was like a cheap holiday camp. Our room was needing redecoration.

    Very gorgeous hotel -- perfectly appointed. the height of luxury and very nice staff.great breakfast bufffet. loved the health spa and pool area. lovely clean rooms -- just perfect in every wat.

    My dinner of a very small amount of pasta (without meat) was very very expensive for what I got -- amounted to about $30. U.S. for a tiny bowl of pasta and no vegies or anything else with it.

    The location and the staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. The rooms were excellent and we all enjoyed the food.

    The first time we went to the pool and tried to work out how the system worked, we found the pool ''life'' guards unfriendly and grumpy. I would also like to have an itemised breakdown of the final account my husband paid when we left. Unfortunately I was busy helping with our grandchildren and wasn't aware that he was not given details of amounts charged - which I would like for my records please.

    Very good

    The location of the hotel is very good. The room was very nice. It was big and had an excellent sea view. Massage at the spa was the best I have ever had.

    Car parking is too expensive. The staff is not so nice.

    Exclusive

    The hotel is the epitome of sofistication and elegance. Our junior suite was beautiful with a view to die for. The staff were very accommodating and arranged some complimentary extras for our stay. The food in the Lord Byron restaurant for dinner was exceptional as was the service all over. Very nice beach club for sunbathing and swimming with poolside bar service. The spa was lovely and we had a fabulous massage to top of a wonderful weekend. Expensive but for us worth every penny.

    Only negative maybe was breakfast. Although the quality was good more choice could be available.

    Fabulous

    Beach front facilities were excellent. Service and cleanliness of room were exceptional. Breakfast buffet was very good and time extension of breakfast buffet being available for guests was adequate.

    Paying for internet and parking garage. A 5 star hotel should not charge for these amenities. They should be offered.
