Excellent choice of hotel.

Excellent accommodation and superb hosts. Fantastic choice for breakfast, very well maintained and the hosts obviously take a great deal of pride in the premises. Within easy reach of the town and old village and a couple of hundred yards from the beach lift. Highly recommended.

Excellent hotel. The only problem is the WIFI. Very intermittent signal and mostly no signal.This can be resolved easily by signal booster. Hence my four star
