For the price, this was a pretty nice hotel. I traveled there solo for a 10 day visit, and didn’t want to spend a fortune as I was heading to Rome after my stay in Athens. The first room I was given was pretty sparse and had two tiny beds in it, so I went back downstairs and upgraded to what was likely a Jr. Suite. The view of the water was beautiful and the room was fairly large.
The receptionists were all very polite and helpful, but the restaurant was a bit odd as it never seemed to have a definitive menu or working hours. The location was very good as it was just a short walk to the beach and various beach bars.
There is an excellent boat cruise available that you can tour three islands on, and they will pick you up at the front of the hotel. The only complaint I have is that the beds are hard as a rock, harder even than beds in Thailand and China. I honestly didn’t sleep a solid night while there due to the discomfort of the bed. Some people love an extra firm bed; I’m just not one of those people. For the price, I would still recommend the hotel as it is clean and close to the beach.
