Nice rooms, good food and friendly staff. I would recomend it for families and young couples or group of friends. Located a few minutes walk from the beach, and there are a lot of restaurants and clubs around.

Upon arrival we noticed no ramp for suitcases just two high flights of steps, and when asked at reception if they had such facilities especially for the elderly, receptionist point blankley said 'no'. Hotel full of 18-24 year old Germans, nothing but... More

Also when going down for food you need to take with you a small piece of paper that you were given... More
