Sea facing hotel, but the beach is a good walk away and the return is a steep climb. Good rooms, pool, service and breakfast. We were 3 families with children and everyone had a great time. One point deducted off the rating only because of the lack of direct access to the beach.

Food is good but little heavy on pockets, but worth it - must try at least one of each meal. Beaches are very near by and at walking distance. The best...
