“Lovely area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

We were out of season so took a taxi, however in season there is a train that runs from the bottom of the strip to the old town. The old town is very picturesque and the square is sheltered from the sea breeze resulting in a suntrap. Lots of bars to choose from and lovely restaurants along the front.

“We used The Vertigo bar as our meeting place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

Liked the amount of bars and restaurants but don't like getting hassled by waiters and touts.
December is very quiet but still get a good feeling about the place

“Beautiful little spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

What a beautiful find. Great character (even in October), great vibe, good food and cheap beer. We visited every other day/night over 14 days. As mentioned, you get the usual chuggers trying to get you into their restaurants/bars but we just ignored them. Loved the little Italian restaurant 'Ricardos' and especially loved the Rock Bar on the square. A great spot entirely.
