Our favourite rooms
We love Room 102 for its bed in the loft, reached by climbing a set of whitewashed steps, and its luscious light, which streams in through duck-egg-blue shutters. Keen cooks will enjoy the cute concrete kitchen and big dining table in Room 104. Rooms 203 and 204 are right by the pool, so may not be the quietest.
There’s a small heated pool on the lower deck and various sunlounger-lined terraces across the grounds, including one with a hot tub.
Avoid getting mocked by the locals and pack some sensibly sturdy flats; Mr Smiths wouldn’t look out of place in a slick Panama hat.
There’s no spa, but a therapist can be summoned for in-room massages and treatments.
Over-14s only. Exceptions are occasionally made during low season, depending on hotel occupancy at the time. An extra bed can be added to the Vanilla room category and suites; prices change depending on the season, ring ahead to request rates.
