I cannot say enough about this hotel. The location is just enough off the beaten path (about 3 blocks from the old city), but right on the Mediterranean. Upon entering the lobby, one has a direct view of the sea. There are seating patios on both first and ground level where you can relax, eat or have drinks. The indoor seating is graced with genuine Roman mosaics, which the super friendly owner collects (among other artifacts from the ancient history of Byblos). The staff are as helpful as can be--very professional, very attentive. The rooms are spotless. The hot water works. The air conditioner works. There is a beach you can walk down a long stairway to. You can rent beach chairs and recliners, buy soda and other refreshements, or just use the beach towels provided for free by the hotel.
