We stayed in a Cape Suite with a partial sea view. The room is 78 sq.m, which is quite large, with a vast bedroom on one side and a large sitting area set with a comfortable sofa on the other. The sea and the islands are visible above the roof of the next building.
The bathroom is large and well equipped, with all the amenities and conveniences you can expect from a 5-stat hotel plus, a walk-in shower and a bathtub. The bathtub is comfortably large and fills up quickly, which is always a treat at the end of your day on the beach!
The room is equipped with TV and satellite channels, a safe deposit box, bath robes, slippers and hairdryer, and a water boiler with tea and instant coffee. The fridge is filled with soft drinks and beers. There is a decent-sized balcony with a sofa, table and chairs in front.
