To tell the truth, I wasn't sure about my choice after reading the "terrible" and "poor" reviews about this hotel. First of all, the location is great: In the center of the town, but in a VERY quiet area. Moreover, due to the fact that it is built on the northern edge of the island-literally on a cape-it offers access(2 minutes walk)to two different beaches:You can choose either a wavy or a quiet one. Also,the area seems to be windy 24/7: This offered me extra comfort, because I didn't feel the heatwave that was striking the island during my stay.
The rooms are very clean and tidy. Matresses, sheets and towels are new. Doors and windows seem to be old and "tired", but I didn't care at all.
Very friendly and caring staff, specially Socrates, the owner and Anna, the lovely receptionist.
Overall, a great choice: Not a luxurious one, but very clean and comfortable, and, above all with a staff of remarkably polite and helping manners.
