4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

It was a pleasant stay as no one bothered us and hotel staff was nice :) We rented cars from Hertz (Dacia Duster - totally worth the money) and had a blast driving around the island! Very nice and interesting still undiscovered island which seemed very prosperous and everyone was nice to everyone, would return!

Rooms are old and seriously ugly. Some have a nice view, but most don't. They are very suspicious, you have to count every little spoon or glass... More

Stayed here for two nights in November 2012 on our honeymoon. Hotel is out of town itself and we were advised by staff that taxi's were scarce and not very reliable (even when booked). We were lucky enough to have a car and I think that you could struggle without one. Room was clean and of a decent size. The... More
