We chose this place at the very last minute, because of the very low booking price and went on a 1200 km journey, by car, to reach it.
The rooms: (-)very dark, with your average sandstone floor, very old furniture with an old smell coming from the closet housing the minibar, ants all over the place, modest bathroom. Having said all this, it was cleaned daily and we spent very few time inside.
The hotel: (-) it's got a small swimming pool which closes very very early, we spent very little time there; the breakfast/dinner was to greek standards, that is, 10 of 12 types same each day, basic, but eatable. It's got a small, but very nice garden in between the hotel's bunks, with peacocks (++). It's part of 3 hotel complex and you can go to the other swiming pools (+).
The location: It's situated 1.5 km away from the main resort and about 400 m from the beach front. The sand and the water however make up for what this hotel is missing. Being a remote location it's not that visited and you'll end up having a great time on the breach (+), then again, you'll have to walk a bit to find some sort of entertainment.
You can't expect to much considering the money invested.
