This beach hosts also two restaurants with excellent fish and sea food, which are very good dinner options if you stay at this hotel. The hotel itself is clean and the staff is very friendly. It has a nice... More

The owner is German and most of the guests when we were there were also, not that that was a problem in any way as their English... More
