The setting in this medival village was terrific. Very relaxing garden and pool area and only a short drive to the seaside resorts. The only minus was lack of local resteraunts, although the terrace at The Placa Hotel in Madremanya, 4 kilometres away was exceptional if pricey. Joseph and his staff were great and very helpful. Would definitly recommend the hotel.
Calm and peaceful with a fantastic medieval place were children run and play while local resident dine all night. The architecture is very modern and trendy with grass on the roof top. Rooms are individualised and very quiet.
Fare from commodities (about 15 minutes from stores) but close to Dali/Gala castle in Pubol
we loved the grounds and the peace and tranquility even though fully booked there never seemed to be anyone around - pure heaven!!
no nothing at all
