The location of this hotel is perfect. Only a short walk to tavernas, shops and the beach.plenty of choice but no clubs - excellent! The hotel beach is small but we didn't use it as the main beach was close enough. The food is nice and staff were all lovely.My only criticism is that the rooms are small and could...
