I was here for one night only and it was a lovely convenient location for both the private beach and walking to the public beach. You can be part of the crowd at one and have all the privacy you want at the other. Perfect! I'd choose this hotel again. As usual the staff were very helpful.

I visited this hotel in January 2016 when we were on our honeymoon. It was good hotel but hotel facilities, bathroom odd colors tiles was average. People there were also very good in hospitalization. Location is good for the hotel with having private beach and good places to enjoy it. Overall a good place to enjoy.

Looking at the reviews, I had booked this hotel between 2-4Feb and stayed in room #216. Overall an average experience of the stay, however this hotel is expected to deliver better service as it terms itself a 3-star property. Pros:- 1) good and clean rooms- however the size of the room could be bigger 2) decent view of the sea...
