Stayed here for a New Years celebration however I must say that it would be an ideal place to stay over summer period. The hotel itself is wonderful with very looked after gardens, spa and swimming pool area, grounds and the beach. Yes, they have their own private beach which a big bonus. The room are spacious with comfy beds. They do give you a pillow menu with a good selection of fillings which would accommodate most picky sleepers. Nice touch! The staff were lovely, pleasant and tactful. They all speak English. The hotel itself is slightly away from city center which was fine by us, as we prefer to stay away from the crowded places, yet its a short drive away to most of sightseeing places. It's a walk-able distance to Park Arboretum, which we recommend to visit too. We did dine at the hotel number of times, as well as having breakfast there everyday. The food was great. I would definitely recommend this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
