This hotel has 6 double rooms and one apartment with 2 dorms. The hotel was built 5 years ago as a private villa, but was transformed to hotel one year ago. It is really beautyful, the pool is nice, the view is excellent. The breakfast was also good - fresh juices, eggs, bread, a lot of fruits, ham, salami etc.... More

It is very quiet. VERY QUIET - so make sure this is what you're looking for :) + rent a car - going to the beach by foot... More

My husband and I are pleased we booked in Villa Vanilla. The service was very personalized. Margaret is such a gem and had been very helpful. The chef was excellent with his creations during dinner as we booked a half board.
