To get to the hotel, might be a bit of a challenge if you are on a budget, as the buses get quite confusing and do not run often (if at all). The taxi fare to the hotel was 25Euros, the good thing was after staying there a few days, we got used to the buses and managed to catch the bus to the airport on our departure date.
The hotel is a family run hotel, thus it is cosy and the owners are the nicest hosts ever. Sarah-Jane emailed me even before we arrived to ask if we needed directions, and tried her best with letting us know about the buses/taxis. The hotel is a few minutes from the bus-stop, supermarket, beach and some eateries.
The rooms were just like the pictures! Nice, clean and decorated in a modern way. The room had a fridge and kettle, and even tea and coffee! Breakfast was a decent spread. Wifi was available but only in the lobby, making it somewhat inconvenient as the signal could not reach our room on the 3rd floor. The only thing that got us confused was the air-con situation. The weather was HOT when we went and we looked everywhere for the air-con controller, to no avail, and realised that they keep it and only give it to you if you agree to pay 3euros extra a night for air-con!
On the whole it was a wonderful stay. Sarah-Jane and Andy were so accommodating, friendly, helpful, and warm. It felt like you were being invited to their home and they were ever ready to offer you help, advice and interesting stories to along with the beautiful stay!
