The hotel is a bit dated but has amazing location. Good value for money. The sea view from our room was amazing. Located in the middle of the old town, it has easy access to local restaurants and bars.

We couldn't have hand picked a better location. Very nice hotel and all rooms have a sea view. We arrived at 9.15pm and reception sent us through to catch the evening meal before they closed at 9.30 , great touch as we presumed we had missed it. Fantastic balcony outside the restaurant with a sea view which is great after... More

We were there on our vacation and really enjoyed the spot and view. Rooms were reasonably priced and service was OK. It was lovely fishrestaurant below and we could rent sunbeds just below the hotel. I think really best spot in town to be. Wish to be there this weekend.

Stayed for 7 nights in July half board. Had requested a high floor room as knew that there is a bar and outdoor restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel and the rooms directly overlook this and may cause some noise. Stayed in room 414 and would not recommend this room or any of the surrounding rooms on this... More

This is a brilliantly located hotel - right on the beach and in the old town. The hotel was a little tired and our bathroom certainly needed updating - I didn't want to use the bath as it looked quite worse for wear. The rooms are big and clean with a fridge in it which is great for storing your... More

Pleasant staff, clean but dated...such a prime location could use a modern hotel. Right on the beach which is fantastic, walking distance to everything. Book it for a perfect getaway in the sun, but don't expect much in the way of amenities.
