We stayed in the main hotel building in August 2011. Room we had was lovely, large, clean, comfortable and had a wonderful view. Setting of the hotel amid Olive and Lemon groves was spectacular. The place is really relaxing and the small shingle beach is a beautiful spot.
But...we arrived in a taxi only to be told that the hotel didn't do lunch and dinner and had no hotel bar. When we asked how to get into town we were told to 'walk up the hill to the shop and ask for the bus times'. There was no mention or sighting of any shuttle bus either. This meant a 15 minute uphill walk to get the bus or any food during the day, longer if you are going from the beach. At night the walk from the bus stop down to the hotel was pretty scary down a quiet barely lit lane.
There was lots of signs around the hotel of things being not quite finished. In particular to get to the beach you have to walk through a not-even half built beach house. Suffice to say there was no facilities at the beach other than a few chairs, loungers and towels.
The hotel building itself was complete and beautiful though.
Do not stay here if you don't have a car or if you are traveling with young children or if you have any elderly or infirm people in your party!
