The four star hotel, which is a member of the healing hotels of the world, is located in lush surroundings directly on the cliffs of the Atlantic Ocean. It has only 24 rooms and it is nicely secluded, so it is peaceful and quiet. The staff are friendly and accommodating and make every effort to ensure your stay is most comfortable and enjoyable.
