Me and my boyfriend have just spent 9 nights at this hotel and cannot fault it at all.
The location was perfect for the beach, just a lift to the bottom floor & you're right on the beach.
Mambo bar on the beach is great for sitting with a cocktail. The rooms were a good size, cleaned every day. Sun beds are 15 euro for 2 on the beach, we ended up buying a couple of li-los!
Just a few minutes walk from the square.
Breakfast was average, most days we didn't rush for it, it finishes at 10am, so if we didn't get breakfast we headed to Tunes bar up the hill for a fresh cooked breakfast 5 euros each.
TIP---If your buying beer/alcohol for the room the shop opposite Tunes Bar is good priced, one euro a Budweiser! Whereas the shops on the square are 1.40 ish!
