Very nice owner and service (although you could wish to have the towels changed maybe twice instead of 1 time a week).
Before we went, I wrote to the owner and asked if there was a hairdryer in the bathroom, since I didn't want to bring one if there was. She answered that there wasn't, but she had one I could borrow, and it would be ready in our room - which it was.
We had a 2-room apartment, and everything was okay, except for very hard beds (we like them more soft). Well-working air condition, and a safety deposit box (you pay 50 and 10 EUR for this for one week).
The location is very close to the beach (100 meters plus the main road you have to cross) and very close to shopping and restaurants, and still, it is very quiet and nice. Because of the smaller size, it is always possible to get a sunbed, and you don't even have to put your towel on them before 7 a.m.! (Not that we ever do this).
There is a lawn also with sunbeds and toys for the children, so you don't have to lie around the pool, very close to the other guests, and this also makes it possible to turn the beds in the direction you want (which is important for me).
There is no food included in the price, but a small market is just opposite the hotel, and you can buy your breakfast at a reasonable prize - and anyway, it is part of the experience to go to the local restaurants.
All in all, we were very happy with our stay, and would definately like to come back!
