It's an old hotel, but was recently expanded with a new building at the back. We were lucky to get one of those rooms, which was a pleasant surprise. Even though it's on a very busy road, those rooms were very quiet, as they are at the back of the hotel. No sea view from our room, but a nice beach with services is only a 3 minutes walk away. Breakfast was included and was nice. Due to COVID protocols, the cleaners would not clean the room every day, but at least we got fresh towels every day. They even provided us with pool/sea towels. They should try to use the sun to heat the pool. The water was not warm enough in October.
