Lovely low-fuss hotel close to the beach
Posted Sep 8, 2013
Villa Marea has a well-deserved 4 star rating with excellent staff and a great standard of cleanliness. Only 5 minutes walk from the beach and 15-20 minutes from the old town, it is well situated to offer a quality stay away from the higher priced resort area. Our room was clean, with quiet and effective air conditioning and a balcony. They don't offer breakfast or have a bar, but each room has a fridge and cutlery, glasses and tableware to make your own breakfast. There is a supermarket about 5-10 minutes away, and two good restaurants close to that. The swimming pool is small but very nice with plenty of sunbeds around. They also have a free tea/coffee/hot chocolate machine for use any time.
The only minus for us was the beds - two singles pushed together with very firm mattresses, and no bar for cocktails by the pool! Other than that, an excellent hotel with friendly and helpful staff - highly recommended.
