Breakfast again was basic, but it did the job.The pool area was clean,spacious & with lovely views all around. A small private path lead from the pool directly to the beach in a couple of minutes....

We had a lovely relaxing 10 night stay at this hotel. Michael the host is very welcoming and friendly. The hotel rooms are very basic but kept clean and towels and bedding changed on a regular basis. The position of this hotel is excellent so close to the beach and only a short walk to the Kalamaki strip. The breakfast... More

We stayed here for 10 nights in early Sptember, and it is a revelation! It is inexpensive yet a fantastic location almost on the beach. There are no hidden rip-off charges for safety deposit Air con or fridge --unlike many hotels. The majority of customers seemed to be from a Czech tour company who stay there half board, so if...
