If "listening to waves and watch the sun and the moon dancing above the sea from your bed" is what you are dreaming about, look no further and sleep here. Clean and nice rooms, comfortable beds and pillows and above all, a 24 hour view of the sea from your bed. Is there anything more important than that? All hail to the team, non stop hard working guys who have always been there to accommodate every needs. Bravi!

Livikon is a simple hotel but is well situated right across from the beach. Rooms are on the larger size with nice balconies with good views. With no booking, the check in was easy and friendly. While breakfast was not included in my rate, the cafe downstairs had a good breakfast choices. While the rooms had TVs, there was no English News channels. The hotel is well placed for supermarkets and eateries,
