(Had there been a kettle, it would have wanting for nowt). Just returned from a week here. Spacious room, nicely fitted, comfortable beds, and, very importantly, quiet.

With a huge tented disco across the... More

Second visit to the Ampalius with a group of twelve golfers. Hotel has a perfect location for the bars and restaurants in the harbour all within walking distance. Rooms are comfy with excellent sea views. The spa is a nice addition after a days golf with sauna, steam room etc. Breakfast has a good selection of hot and cold food.

Breakfast is good but gets extremely busy after 09.00 each morning in the summer months. Nice size room each time with balcony. Very clean. Would... More
