Me and hubby (in our mid 30's) wanted for a week sitting in the sun, swimming in the sea, supping beers and eating out - thats exactly what we got. We loved it.
My only criteria for accommodation was that it was clean, safe and had a balcony with a view .... and this was perfect. The view of sea, beach and mountains really is STUNNING and even if the room had been a let-down (it wasn't), i wouldn't have minded paying the same amount of money simply for having my breakfast and supper on that balcony every day. We stayed in room 52 and it looked to me like rooms 50-55 had the best views ... though i'm told all rooms have a good view.
The room - basic but absolutely fine. Clean, and well kept by maids each day. Twin beds were pushed together to make a double ... beds were a bit too hard for my liking but hubby liked them. Kitchenette had fridge, hobs and utensils - just what we needed for making some simple breakfasts and lunches. Shower wasn't much more than a dribble and i was disappointed with it at first but at the risk of being repetitive ... any of the less-than-perfect details were forgiven for the view!
The pool is a lovely little place for a cool down and dip, sunloungers always available and that too has a great view. The pool bar becomes the hotels informal reception and three really friendly, really helpful staff were usually around to answer any queries. Nice chilled out day time tunes and great Frappes!
The hill - i'm almost reluctant to talk about it because i'm sure the owners must be so bored with the never ending talk of it ... yes there's a hill, yes, its a bit tiring to walk up but it usually took us 5 minutes max and never- not once - did it ruin my enjoyment of being in such a beautiful place. Good to know to expect it i suppose ...but anyone who lets its be a reason not to stay here is gonna miss out big time.
Would defo stay there again and i have a strong feeling it the best place to stay on the beautiful resort of Golden Beach.
