We stayed for 9 days with another couple from 26 September and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. The room was in the main building near reception and had a lovely balcony which caught the afternoon/evening sun. The room was cleaned every day except Sunday and sheets changed several times in our stay. Air con was free and very good although not needed on 3 nights when weather was cooler--
Weather went from 32 down to 25 and then 20 on last 2 days when sea was rough.
Sofia was very helpful and most welcoming and we had space to park our hire car by reception.Sofia demonstrated how helpful she was as one of the guests was taken to hospital and she took the Danish guest's wife to visit on several occasions.
The restaurant by the beach served us a great breakfast every day and we ate at least half our meals there--Stifado was really good.The staff were geat fun and most helpful.
The pool is perhaps a liitle small ( 12m x 5m ,my guess ) but is clean and has nice loungers and is beside the bar and beach.
Alltoghether a really relaxing holiday -- we would have no hesitation in recommending to others and would hope to return to on another year.
