What an absolutly idyllic place for a relaxing holiday. My wife and I came here to relax and chill in the warm sunshine, and this is exactly what we found here.

The service was amazing, the location breathtaking, the rooms very luxurious and meals were delicious!

I highly recommend this hidden gem, a once in a lifetime holiday to remember.

Kind regards from the UK,
