We were there in the middle of october. The sea is still good for swimming (and windsurfing), the weather is still warm,and it is all calm and relaxing. No rush and no crowd, just the sea, sun and sandy beach. Visit after the high season! The place is amazing, choose the bungalows at the seaside. The staff is very kind...

Bed bugs, mosquitoes & ants will feed on you. The concrete blocks they call 'bungalows' are not safe. They are too small at best. Not 'as described' and not so where anyone should stay, even on a small budget. The 'toiletries' consisted of 2 packets of shower gel & 1 toilet roll. The large windows on the luxory bungalows shown...

It's practically on the beach, food is ok, personnel is trying to make it bearable, but... shabby little cabins with a small windows like in a prison cell, things breaking up every day, jet planes flying over your head day and night, ridiculously loud disco music few meters from your pillow until 5am...

I chose this place because of its proximity to the airport. However I was surprised when I landed here, which is next to the shore. However the room was small but good enough for short stays on budget. Nice ambiance within the hotel and had massage service as well. There was a Srilankan guy working in this hotel, who was...

Stayed at the hotel for a few nights as I had to do some business at Catania airport and the hotel advertised as being only 5 minutes away. Yes, maybe in still air it is. It is impossible to reach by foot and the taxis are super expensive. The "airport shuttle" provided for a surcharge is actually an unofficial/unlicensed taxi...
