The room was charming with a balcony that overlooked the garden and one of the pools. The room was very comfortable, clean and attractively furnished. It is right on the main street with numerous restaurants and shops all along the street and the beach is a very short walk away. The hotel had a restaurant where we had breakfast, which...

We enjoyed the two small pools, great Italian restaurant and very friendly service. It is clean save and value for money. Rooms in the back have better view, the once upstairs more privacy. TV has many channels. AC works great.

First room they put me in was a disaster. AC didn't work, it was very small (not much room for anything but the bed), bathroom door groaned on its hinges badly. Water pipes are backwards, so if you turn your shower to 'hot', you'll get cold water--but they didn't tell me that when I checked in. After two days, they...
