Rooms with panoramic sea view are very good!
The rooms with panoramic sea view (big balcony) are the best choice when deciding to stay here. We upgraded our room to one of them and became very happy. The owner and hosts are very kind and will take care of you during your stay. Thanks for taking care of us!
