Our room was lovely and had a nice view towards the sea. Staff in the dining area... More

Generally speaking we experienced a satisfying stay at the Hotel Kernos Beach. Although we had some inconveniences at the beginning, the whole hotel staff made a big effort to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.
