We visited last week for three nights. We stayed on the third floor in a room with a beautiful view of the sea.
The hotel has a very central location. Some rooms have a small terrace while others do not (ours did not). The front windows open up completely.
The design of the hotel requires you to walk down twelve stairs or so to get to your room. Inside the room, you must walk down a few stairs to the level of the bathroom and back up a few stairs to the level of the bedroom (in the rear with a window facing the street in back).
Breakfast is the standard fare. The front desk is very helpful.
The hotel does not have their own beach. The beach across the street is public. Or, you can reserve chairs, umbrella, and towels at the private concession just next to the public beach. The cost was 35 Euros for the day. Keep that in mind if you are a daily beach lover.
We found free parking for the first two nights for our car. The third day was Friday market day, so we needed to park down the street in their garage for 20 Euros.
I would like to try a hotel with its own pool and/or beach next time, but the price may be higher o they may charge extra for the use of the chairs and beach anyway.
