9.6 Excellent
Pros: Excellent service and location
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Well it is almost impossible to describe how absolutely fantastic Cliff Lodge is. The senery from the breakfeast area is out of this world (and I have travelled most of the globe!). This is also true of that from the penthouse suite that we were lucky enough to stay in. The service is impeccable and breakfeast is of the very highest standards and delicious. Nothing is a problem for the hosts and Nico who certainly deserves a special mention and who from the moment you arrive makes you feel completely at home and fully understands "how to be there but not be there" (which is rare) when something is required. There is really not much more to say.. it is simply outstanding.
