We stayed at Nicolas Villas for the first 2 weeks in June 2014. The hotel is basic, almost austere, but has been recently painted and is spotlessly clean. The rooms are very basic, 2 hard single beds, and no drawers to put clothes in, just a wardrobe with 3 coathangers, so unable to unpack, we lived out of our suitcases.... More

Staff are overworked and miserable, reception staff couldnt care less if you had an issue, just looked at you with contempt. The bus that goes to the beach is a death... More

This Hotel as been given some bad publicity, to be honest the hotel is clean and the staff are very friendly. I enjoyed the pool. The coffe was lovely. Now to the nitty gritty. The food was nearly always cold, they should invest in a few microwaves then people could heat it up. The meat was always cooked ,but when... More
