Very friendly receptionist proposed a family room on top with balcony and an amazing view over the sea. All rooms are sea-view and some with private balcony. Hotel was still busy with tourists and an amazing daily temperature of 22 degrees Very nice breakfast and cappuccino served at the terrace by very friendly staff A treat !

This is a nice hotel with an awesome view. The staff went out of there way to assist us when our rental car had problems and had to be towed. The car rental company just stranded us...no replacement car. The staff assisted us in booking a train so we could continue our vacation.
