I stayed there for three weeks in February 2014. I rented penthouse suite.
The rooms are quite big. Little bit worn out already. From the rooftop the view is very good over the buildings to the sea. But daytime rooftop is quite a hot place to be. There is an area with shade though.
Pool is long, if you really want to swim. It is quite narrow, so when there are more people it is quite crowded.
Service is pretty good. They try to be friendly and helpful. But as always English is not their native language, so do not expect too much.
Breakfast was not included in the price. Went there once but it was too expensive and not good enough. In the apartment there is a kitchen so not a problem.
There is a bigger market close by, where you can buy things.
Parking might be tricky, there are few places in the back side of the building, but you can park by the street as well.
Beach is very close. Just few minutes walk. The beach itself is quite good for swimming and sunbathing. For snorkeling it is not interesting enough.
All in all if I go there again, this is very good choice for a place to stay.
