Officially a 4 star (which means little) but friendly staff, clean comfy rooms with excellent Coco-mat beds, air conditioning. Very nice pool and just 50m to beach. Breakfast buffet was fine with range of cold continental breakfast plus eggs and sometimes bacon. Coffee was poor - never mind!
The hotel is used by predominately German travel companies.
Bar prices are the same as local bars which is a nice surprise!
Best of all was the wonderful help from the receptionist. On arrival I realized I had left my camera at a taverna some 30km way. The staff identified the taverna, called them, and I could safely drive back to collect.
