This hotel is is a beautiful boutique hotel and every room is a bit unique. The hotel is in an old stone building that front on a small street in the center of town, two streets over from the main drag with the most tapas bars. The back of the hotel is built into a cliff and faces the beach on the western side of the town (not the beach with the fishing docks and port).
It is well worth the upgrade to get a room with a sea view. The rooms have floor to ceiling windows that over look the beach below. The hotel usually books up way in advance during peak season (July and August) so it is best to make a reservation early. Also, the hotel only has two parking spots, so if you come by car, you need to reserve a spot with your room, if it is available. Parking is definitely an issue and there is nowhere to park over night within several blocks of the hotel.
The breakfast at the hotel is a great european buffet, with meets, cheeses, fresh breads, yogurt, juices, muesli and other baked goods. It costs an additional 9 EUR per person, but it was well worth it and we would recommend it to anybody who stays at the hotel.
The first night we arrived, the air conditioning was not working properly, but the front desk attendant, Alex, was extremely understanding and called a technician to try to fix it after 9 pm. Eventually, the unit was fixed. When we checked out, we did not mention the inconvenience, but the hotel kindly charged us a lower room rate because of situation the first night. We were very impressed.
