I only ended up at the Lavinia Villa because I missed the listings for recommended guest houses in my Rough Guide. The room did not disappoint. AC, television with Star Sports 4 (for Premiership football) and a decent shower if inadequate drainage system leaving a big puddle of water on the floor. But there are problems with this place.

It had a bar and restaurant, air con and was superbly decorated. I paid 39$ for a room and breakfast here. It has... More

It's more like a house with 4-5 rooms than a hotel. Clean and comfortable rooms with LCD TVs. The bathrooms are spacious, clean and adequate. Decent wi-fi connectivity. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Food can be custom ordered(including breakfast) and is extremely tasty. Close to the beach. The lane leading to the villa can be a put off. Extremely... More

I really like this small hotel. Rooms were almost perfect, price was really good and what is most important, it is only 200 meters away from beautiful beach. Staff was great, breakfast fantastic, the only disadvantage of this hotel is extremly slow wifi. Nevertheless, best choice for this price.
