Very near - 10 minutes stroll - a very nice beach with rentable sunbeds/shares and a good café/restaurant at the back. There are maybe a dozen restaurants... More

The staff are always friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable with most balconies overlooking the sea. An excellent breakfast in the bright restaurant offers many choices. Peaceful sunbathing area, comfortable beds with towels supplied. Good restaurants and bars locally and music in the hotel every evening with great bar staff.
