We enjoyed this studio apartment in the off-season, so at night the hotel was quiet, we could sleep really well. The people who run this place were very friendly, they helped and gave us information about the area. The nearest beach is probably a 15min walk but we rented a scooter for the whole week. Really close-by are two amazing... More

Happy days is a great place to stay, the staff are a real laugh and try to make sure you have a good holiday. I highly recommend it. You are far enough away from the strip so it is quiet at night but close enough so you can walk there in 5-10 minutes.
