There is a handsome antique cistern painted with mythological figures supported on glided seahorses and dolphins, nearby the embers burn in a marble fireplace. You should be sure to have booked well in advance in order to have secured one of the six spacious suites, which are likewise furnished with splendid antiques, including magnificent carved beds.
There is a pleasant hexagonal bar with doors opening out to the magnificent view, beside it is a comfortable sitting room, where a pianist plays in the evening. The restaurant runs the length of the verandah - so many tables have the advantage of the view - and into a main room; there is a fine marble fireplace at each end. Over one is an impressive still-life of seafood, over the other a portrait in oils of a pensive lady; another huge still-life is of flowers. Chandelier and wall lights are in the shape of white translucent lilies; massive, well-polished silverware, antiques, palm trees, well-starched damask linen tablecloths.
This is a gracious, very professional, and highly praised hotel.
