I booked the hotel for my British friends. I posted a photo from the beach during sunset. I never stayed there, but I use this beach very often, and it was one reason to book the hotel for my friends which finally had a lovely stay during July without a single problem. So the review is from them, and concerning... More

I have not stayed at this hotel, but I know people who have. The hotel has a very progressive and welcoming attitude towards cat welfare, and provides a safe environment for them in the hotel grounds, and a place for guest to feed the cats away from the restaurants. A few tourists have adopted kittens from there and a local... More

We stayed in a very spacious room on the first floor. Next to our premises we found a tennis court and had a few games there. We also liked two nice pools where you can swim when the sea is too wavy. There is a nice coffee and tea place inside the garden and facilities for children. The beach is... More
