My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights. Upon arrival the desk clerk upgraded us to a garden room as I was in a wheelchair. I'd read previous reviews which said that it was a good hotel for those with mobility issues, so I didn't think to mention it. However, you will be assigned a downstairs room (the hotel is built on a hill so the main level is upper). if you don't let them know. Thanks for the upgrade. The room was spacious with two single beds, a fully equipped kitchen - microwave, double hob, toaster, kettle, fridge etc. There is a lovely little balcony which gets the sun all day long, a reasonable sized bathroom with shower and bath. Our room was a stone's throw from the pool which is great for those of us with limited mobility as you can get about a bit on your own. We went HB and I have to say, the food didn't disappoint. We arrived at 10pm and they had a table ready for us in the restaurant. We were provided with a menu but opted for a salad starter only, which they promptly made up to a main dish without us asking. There were 2 choices per course (3 courses with bread and olives) each evening waiter served, which is a delight instead of the usual buffet style you get. For breakfast there were a choice of eggs, frankfurters, bacon, pastries, fruit juices, breads, cereals etc. A glass of wine is 2.50 Euros which is fairly reasonable. There are a lot of golf groups staying which means there are fewer kids and people are fairly well behaved (it's a small hotel afterall). A free shuttle service takes you from the hotel to the supermarket, beach and marina (I would definitely see the latter as the yachts are amazing). There's no entertainment for kids so if you have a family you should probably take them to one of the hotels in the town centre as it's also a bit of a hike from this hotel to town. I did my research for transfers and would recommend Alpharooms as the cheapest by far. The only downside is you get picked up a great deal in advance from your hotel to the airport.
