Great Hospitality. The owner "Shams" leads by example. Rooms are clean, with excellent sea view. Quiet location, only 5 minutes away walking distance from all the hot shot cafes. The staff can guide you in any of your interests.

Very comfortable place right on the beach. The lodging was clean, comfortable, quiet and with a view of the ocean. Many options for the breakfast that was included. Very helpful staff. It was a bit cool, for me, when I was there in November so I did not dive but they have a dive operation right on the premises.
