    The out dated room. And it had a strange smell. The dinner buffet was awful. Food was cold or only luke warm. ( but the breakfast buffet was AMAZING!!!!!)

    Loved the beach and the fact that we could have an umbrella and chairs when we got there free of charge!!!! LOVED OUR VIEW from the balcony!!!

    The swimming pool was a little on the cool side, but that may have been more down to it being early May and slightly breezy. I imagine later on in the season it would be quite nice for cooling down in the sweltering heat

    The staff were so warm, genuine & professional making the guests feel right at home. The short stroll to the beach was simply stunning. The buffet breakfast was especially tasty with a great selection of fruits, meats, hot and cold options and always a fresh delicious cake.

    We were there December/January so it was very quiet, which suited us. Our room had a balcony overlooking the gardens, sand dunes and sea, which was far more than we'd expected. Beyond the garden was a board walk, leading to a beach that stretched for 15 km - it was wonderful. Plus the room offered a fridge and a kettle, and very efficient heating/air conditioning. The breakfasts were fantastic, and the restaurant was open every evening - with other eating places not too far away.

    Indicated activities (yoga) did not take place

    Big rooms, comfortable beds. Value for money is very good if you book long time in advance. Hotel restaurant does not serve top nudge food, but it is very cheap (if you don't want to go out in the evening). We got extra dessert because we had to wait a bit before being served. Very much appreciated by the kids!

    Rather dated. Restaurant a bit basic (like the hotel I guess) - only one waiter to serve a large number of guests (we wanted to have dinner on 1st January but left after about 20 minutes to eat elsewhere).

    Very good value for money, nice sea views, walking distance to beautiful beach.

    Nothing!

    The breakfests were wonderful, a lot to choose from and everything delicious. The hotel looks very nice,is clean, quiet and the staff were always nice and helpful. Special thank you to the receptionist who gave me her own painkillers when I needed them. The beach near hotel is beautiful, clean and a 5 minute walk away. I don't think anything could be better.

    The rooms are not that clean. The floors are dirty and the bathrooms are not cleaned regularly and also things like soaps and shampoos are not replaced.

    The receptionist Sandra was very friendly. She even saw us on the streets in the city and thinking that we might be lost drove back and offered us lift. We are very impressed with this kindness.

    Beach location excellent. Manta Rota village walking distance but not for shopping. A Proa restaurant unpretentious food in village. Bicycle hire recommended. Quiet atmosphere and very helpful and friendly staff. Pool area in nice gardens. Jose very helpful to guests.

    Little Gem of an Hotel

    Food - limited choice but then it was low season & for that reason more cost effective for the hotel. However, you definitely would not go hungry. Other Residents - not a place for loud/ noisy people. However, my experience of this misfortune was both swiftly and effectively dealt with by Reception staff.

    Reception Staff - warm, welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable, nothing ever too much. Sandra was whom I had the most interaction with was a brilliant ambassador for the hotel. Catering Staff - Saskia the waitress, should be praised for her continuous hard work, which was always completed with a never ending smile and extreme politeness. Domestic Staff - always helpful as and when required. Rooms cleaned very well. Facilities - bed really comfortable. WiFi available. Beach about 5 minutes from the hotel. Main village eateries/shops about 10 minutes away. Bike hire available.
