I don’t often write reviews but… from the moment we booked to the moment we left the staff couldn’t do enough for us! They arranged our transport as taxi costs are unpredictable, then met us on arrival and talked us through the area and things to do etc. not too in-depth just enough! The hotel is extremely well kept, air conditioned, clean and a huge amount of pride shown by every staff member… the owner is about every day overseeing a wonderful operation 😊 Does the hotel have all the trimmings that huge all inclusive resorts may offer? No but… you have everything you need for this island, it’s bed and breakfast (the breakfast is small but enough variety trying to accommodate all; cereal, juice, Continental and cooked. Even pastries, toast teas and coffee) lovely pool area, pool bar, fridge & safe, tv in room plus separate shower area for those checking out late ⏰ it doesn’t pretend to be 5 star but what they do have is 5 star of what they try to offer! Shops, supermarkets, restaurants, beach, bars, quad hire etc. are all on the doorstep and I would highly recommend this facility 😎

This was the perfect place for my boyfriend and I to spend two nights in Kamari. The location is perfect, right by the beach as well as lots of shops and restaurants. The staff was incredibly amazing, they let us keep our bags in the room since we had a really late flight on the day of our checkout. They also helped us find everything we needed including a place to do laundry. Genuinely such a nice place to stay.

Overall we loved this property! It may not have quite the ‘charm’ of other hotels in Kamari, but it more than makes up for it in value, room size, bathroom quality and the free breakfast! We would stay here again and felt the value of this hotel was top notch.

Remek szálláshely
Szuper szálláshely nagyon kedves segítőkész személyzet. Finom reggelik a medence mellet gyönyörű környezetben. Nagyon közel a tengerpart a szomszédban pedig kiváló éttermek.
