After having booked this holiday following generally good reviews on "Trip Adviser" we were disappointed at arrival at the hotel. Although set in a beautiful natural spot and quiet surroundings the accommodation left much to be desired. The chalets are very basic and in need of update. There is no Air Conditioning available in any of the Chalets just a ceiling fan which really wasn't doing much to lower the room temperature which was 35 in the shade ! The bathroom was compact the most annoying feature of which was the pull across shower curtain half way across the room which meant that you have the toilet in the shower with you !!!!! Which meant we had to keep wiping it down after each use.
Staff were polite if spoken to but I would not say friendly especially the owner who may have wished us good morning twice in 5 days.
Don't know what they use to sanitise the draws with but it must be alcohol based as it smelt of "grappa" hence we didn't use them !
The beach although pleasant enough is very stony all the way into the sea where it drops steeply very quickly, I would have thought not very suitable for young children.
Overall good location, pity about the accommodation which perhaps we would have felt better about if at least the staff had been friendlier.
