Style & Character
This resort is already a firm favourite with families but also attracts nature-lovers of every stripe. We love the fabulously large infinity pool with a small garden planted not at the edge - but in the pool itself.
Service & Facilities

Without a doubt, the bathroom is a triumph, and it's clever to have the ample storage there on the wall behind the bedroom. The rain shower cubicle is enormous. The open plan of our space and the natural ambience really appeals - the views beyond the balcony seem to be invited into the room.

Food & Drink
The service is excellent, very personal and thoughtful. Advice for wine is on offer but you never feel pressured into trying something if you don't want to. The torta de laranja (orange roll) was a favourite, not a pastry as such but a creamy sorbet with orange flavoured accoutrements.
