Very good 8.0
Lovely sandy beach a few minutes walk with bar and restaurant. Hotel has large well maintained gardens and pools which were very pleasant to sit in. Spectacular sea views. Need to have taxi in the evenings unless want to eat in the hotel,we were only there for a few days so went out to see the surrounding areas.
