My mother and I stayed here for a week in January. We liked this hotel a lot and would definitely go back. The staff on the front desk were very friendly and knowledgeable about the area, giving us numerous tips about hiking routes, activities, bus schedules, etc.
The rooms were pleasant - not luxurious (3 star is right) but well presented, clean and with a lovely view over the mountains. The hotel is well positioned next to a parade of handy shops and close to the sea. Several beaches are within a few minutes walking distance.
There was a plentiful buffet breakfast on the roof terrace every morning. We also chose the dine-in option, which was good value for money. We're vegetarian and there was still enough choice for us. It wasn't haute cuisine, but decent food and an excellent selection of deserts.
Most of the guests - both in this hotel and on the island generally - were German. This was really an advantage as everyone still spoke excellent English but there was less noise and rowdiness than one would expect from a British resort.
Our only tiny criticism was that the roof-top pool was unheated, and very cold in January. I swam twice but only saw one other person swim during the week - and he got out quickly after a single length!
