Decent hotel with all necessary - bar, restaurant. Rooms are moderate. Location beside the sea is excellent. City center is about 2 kilometers away. Breakfast is good. You can choose between english or continental. Personnel is friendly.

Had a wonderful meal at the restaurant here - a really very delicious vegetable lasagne and calzone. Also treated myself to a couple of treatments at the spa; had a very relaxing massage and facial. Good value for money and lovely staff. Will be returning on my next visit.
