Comfortable hotel, with a good quality / price ratio, excellent location just a few meters from the hydrofoil dock, and from the small boats that take you around the island. Friendly staff - we even met and talked for a while to the owner, you will get a fruit juice as welcome, and you will enjoy a very good breakfast with plenty of cakes and sweet stuff. Spacious, clean and reasonably comfortable rooms.
On the not so positive side, the free internet access has low band width / poor coverage in some areas, and it expires every about two hours (so a new code needs to be asked again and again to reception if you are an internet freak). Maintenance could be improved (safety box in our room did not work) and the rooms would benefit from some additional furniture (mainly, a working table and one or two additional chairs). There was an old fashioned CRT TV set in the room but we didn't even bother to turn it on (who wastes time watching TV while being in this lovely island)
