    Service and food were below average, and would make me think twice about going back there. Location however brilliant and walking distance to nice beach. Hotel has no parking which was a mission to find, would have expected hotel to have parking for its guests.

    The room was spacious and clean with balcony providing a breath-taking view. The staff was friendly and always helpful. Nice pool and garden for sunbathing. A few sandy beaches in close proximity. Good breakfast providing a wide range of food.
