The hotel is perfectly located for the beach (50m), shops (5m), and restaurants (50m). Despite being located among a row of gift shops and boutiques, it is a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The walk to the beach and beachfront restaurants is very pleasant.
The beach however is sand that is actually black volcanic rock, so is just about impossible to walk on in bare feet because it's like walking on burning coals. There ARE walk-boards every few yards weaving between the sunbeds, which helps to get down to the water. The water is crystal clear so worth the effort.
As for the hotel itself, absolutely beautiful. Well maintained, clean and tidy with a very nice pool. Rooms are spacious and all have private balconies. Ours was on the ground floor right next to the pool and I think is probably the best room in the hotel (Room 101 if you want to try requesting it) being as it is practically detached apart from the room above. The hosts are welcoming, warm and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for them and their staff.
