Two Sofias (it is a family business) greeted us warmly upon arrival, coming to curb to assist with luggage. They were extremely helpful with directions, maps, walking & bus, and restaurants . Breakfast was bountiful and delicious! Rooms are spacious. Pool area and lobby lovely.

Hi no free shuttle service from this hotel but it’s so easy to go down the road and get the airport bus it’s very cheap or you can walk from the hotel. Will take you about 20 minutes.
