“Basic, isolated but met our needs.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Service was very good, lady at reception was accommodating when our room wasn't ready due to our early arrival. Rooms are quite basic, no a/c but fans are provided. I wouldn't want to stay there though if it was very hot.
Overall, the hotel is simple, somewhat rural and basic, but surprisingly clean. The breakfast, service and pool in the sister hotel, Ses Eufabietes (which we were at liberty to use) were great. It's a little isolated being more inland, definitely need a car. Given our stay was in peak season and we booked relatively late, this suited our needs. However, we would most likely not stay there again - opting for somewhere that was much closer to the beach.

This could be eiether your dream hotel or average accomodation. I wouldnt go as far as saying a nightmare cause it is a basic place and as such is OK. The layout and appearance of the hotel is quite rural; the rooms are the same. very basic beds and shower. The rooms of course don't have TV or any luxuries of the 21st century. There was a fan, which was't the freshest but I supposse it did the job.
The man who received us (two girls travelling) was quite awkard, we thought a bit intimidating sort of. I personally didn't feel safe, but then again nothing happened to us, so nothing to be alarmed.
The hotel is by platja Mitjorn which is supposed to be beautiful, but the hotel is located by the dirty more isolated side, with loads of seaweed on the beach and the sea - 10 min walk from the hotel through a rural path.

Fionally getting to the hotel was also a bit of a mission, as fun as it was to drive our scooters along the fields, it felt quite retired from the main road of the island (PM-820)

The Casbah was a magical place for me 37 years ago when it was owned by the Von Bissing family. I am sure the magic is still there! Bobby Lear
