absolutely livelt clean spacious hotel. Has pleanty of light, calm serene atmosphere. Staff very friendly especially Katerina in the restaurant. Food is delicious. Tuna steak and seabass was yumm. The spa facilities were brilliant and good value for the service offered. The jacuzzi is big and spacious, pool clean. Loads to eat in terms of snacks. Only 7 mins to old town where all the bars and restaurants are. Would highly recomment Meet bar (say hello to great bar men Frankie Ricardo and Ricardo) and Bank (brilliant dancers). Clubs open at 4am in the new town. As we went 1 week out of season we didnt venture out there as we were advised it would be very quiet. However; Old town was buzzing. Overall had an amazing stay and holiday. Felt safe. Left rooms open no issue.
