Also very surprised at there being a charge for air-con . ..the restaurant staff in the evenings were surly & quite rude at times .... More

Hardly any service been kept awake most nights by other guests shouting and laughing till 3/4in the morning most nights with no consideration about disturbing other guests sleep or care from staff Staff only seem interested in the Greek guests with very little other language spoken. Not often staff available on the front desk

Cheap and basic. Quite cheap but definitely very basic. I found hair in the bath, a big hole in the sheets, and poor (I mean poor) breakfast. Other than that, the family running the place is sweet and helpful.

Pool Bar - Rubbish, unless you are part of the family. The bar was never open. My mum asked for... More

The hotel is close to the beach and to the main attractions of Ammoudara - restaurants, shops and clubs. I would recommend it to people who spend most of the time out since there is not much to do in the hotel. Rooms are quite cramped and so are the bathrooms. However, they were kept clean. Breakfast is very monotnous... More

Close to beach, easy access by bus (only 2 euro ticket) to the center. Clean and quiet place with very friendly staff. I was there in May and what was really important to me there was no children at all so I could really rest
