Excellent, quiet hotel
Hotel is high up on the hill, a 5 minute walk up from the town. Although it was hard to get into on first arrival, just as we arrived at 11am someone was leaving so let us in. There was someone on the desk and although we were not due to book in from 3pm they had one of the two rooms ready and we were able to leave our bags etc. The hotel is lovely, although there is no bar or restaurant. The pool has plenty of sunbeds and room to sunbathe. Our two 1 bedroom apt, were both spacious and had everything we needed from toaster, microwave, hairdryer. Great hotel, very quiet, very reasonably priced. Loved it.
