Immer wieder gern
Das Hotel ist im alten Teil der Stadt gelegen und hat dadurch eine sehr angenehme und recht ruhige Lage (waren aber auch nach der Hauptsaison dort). Zu Supermärkten bzw. Restaurantes und Bars/Clubs sind es nur ca. 10-15min. Der Strand ist auch nicht allzu weit, außer man möchte etwas abseits von Hotels baden, dann sollte man ca. 30min zu Fuß einplanen, was sich aber gelohnt hat. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und die Zimmer mit Küchenzeile auch spitze. In heißen Nächten sollte man jedoch die Klimaanlage gegen ein paar Euro in Anspruch nehmen, da man sonst kein Auge zu macht. Das Frühstück würde ich allerdings nicht unbedingt empfehlen, da man danach definitiv nicht satt ist. Wir haben dann die restlichen Tage auf dem Zimmer gefrühstückt schließlich ist von Besteck über Kühlschrank und Herd alles vorhanden.
