A place where champagne and oyster breakfasts are a daily ritual. Where the town’s best Mojito is served by a smiling barkeep and where style and a chic atmosphere do not take away from the welcoming environment that is The Delight. Rooms are adorned with contemporary colours and finishes, maintaining spacious comfort. Every room has its own terrace or balcony to allow access to the fresh coastal breeze. The Delight also offers conferencing facilities and access to breakfast events.

Good location and a nice big apartment. Spoiled by the stink of stale cigarette smoke that permeated all the rooms

Pirotta, Enrico

While being functional and well equipped, this resort is the one we liked the least. It is also very exposed to strong cold winds.

Ward, Esme

27 Aug 2015

Huge rooms, comfortable. Not sure we needed two nights but very relaxing. Probably most European in feel of all the places we stayed.

Leber, Elisa

Cutter, Mark

Great place for a full on tourism town, well maintained and well organised. Good facilities throughout. Recommended as a stopover. Unsurprisingly, some people clearly staying there for the long haul.
