We have chosen this hotel based on tripadvisor reviews, stayed for 2 weeks, and it is really excellent, value for money. Quiet, and relaxing, ~30 metres to the beach, free sun beds. If you have a half board you are entitled (I believe it’s still the case) for one free A la carte dinner instead of a buffet dinner – take advantage of this opportunity. It’s on the beach: sunset, sea, etc. included. It’s been already mentioned here, probably, the only drawback - no fresh (or at least “not from concentrate”) juices on breakfast, and the coffee was not strong to my taste. (by the way, during the breakfast you have an opportunity to make a “Greek” coffee for yourself – in the hot sand – quite a fun). The beach: I think it has a very lucky location – further to the west could be windy with rather big waves; to the east – the sea is deeper.
We travelled to Falassarna and Elafonisi beaches as well. Haven’t been impressed with the first one – the waves are too high to swim. But the second one is a must – shallow waters, beautiful mountains around. But it’s very windy there, and be ready for narrow mountain roads – it’s fun but can be quite scary.
