I would echo the same comment as some other reviews and definitely get directions. This hotel is VERY hard to find. Our agent copied the description from the hotel of "enchanting panorama and view of the sea". However, we had a very small window with no view and the sea is miles away. The room was of the motel variety with scratched up furniture and non-descript desk, TV on stand. Bed was standard with comforter that was not very pretty. Actually, the room reminded us of a lodge. It was quiet, though.
The dinner at the restaurant was always outside on the terrace which was nice but the service was usually performed by young teenagers who were unfamiliar with the menu and the two nights we stayed there, some things were not available (we ate fairly early by European standards).
Hotel was clean but don't think I would stay there again as we felt totally isolated but not for any good reason.
