We stayed for 9 days with another couple from 26 September and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. The room was in the main building near reception and had a lovely balcony which caught the afternoon/evening sun.

We stayed here for a week during September. We stayed in a studio apartment and it provided all the necessary features that you would expect. We particularly appreciated being located in apartment No.17 as this was away from the main street on which the bars and restaurants are located and it was set back from the sea and hotel restaurant...

This is a great place to stay, being near the beach and the restaurants around, and good value for money. Sofia is very helpful and accommodating to your needs. I changed room to the quieter pool end of the buildings and had a very clean studio room with a small balcony towards the pool and beach.

The bedroom was a good size with its own balcony (with a table and 3 chairs which just about fitted), but the living area was quite small with one single bed in it,... More
