Well, it would be better solution to have some privacy at the terrace, but it wasn't so big problem. Room: not big, but... More

Friendly people! Greek hospitality!Comfortable hotel,light clean rooms, snow-light bed-clothes and towels! I lived in the room with seaview, it was so nice to have a breath of fresh sea air! So close to sea. There are beautiful and unusual flowers around.The great place to forget about everyday worries and problems.I recommend this perfect hotel to everyone.

Really cosy hotel, very convenient for family with a baby, as it is very quiet and just one step from the beach. Stunning sea view and sunset from our room! Rooms clean and staff very friendly. No need for a car unless one wants to visit the city. Definitely would choose it again!

The room was very lovely, cosy and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful and Manolis gave me great advises... More
