We loved this hotel, but were so disappointed in the beach just across the street. It is a narrow strip with hotel lounge chairs, from which you listen to the constant noise of a busy street...motorbikes, vespas, atv's, trucks, most with noisy mufflers! We walked this beach in both directions and enjoyed the local scenes, but never got far from the street, which is the "main drag" into town. (The beach in front of the Hotel Alisei was quieter and wider because the traffic is much less on that side of town.)
So while we agree with all the great reviews of the hotel here on TA, we would have liked to know this caveat.
