Breakfast had good variety but room was to dark. night was noisy because of outside music concert and market. You could also hear the neighbours snorring because of thin walls. Parking infront of hotel €11 or in the... More

The staff are very friendly and helpful as they try their best to speak English. The continental breakfast was lovely! The beach isn't far away either, about a 10 minute walk and it's a... More

We stayed for a week mid July, in a room facing the front. We had no problems with the noise from the night market, in fact when you shut the windows, with the air con on, which by the way was a must and very proficient, you could not hear any thing. All the staff we came in contact with,... More

3 stars hotel advertised as 4 stars. Hotel was good but not great. Towels were missing in the room. Location is great. Parking is also good. Breakfast quite good as well. The room is simple but very good.
