The location is awesome, close to the sea, good restaurantes and places and also from the airport: it's just a 15 minute card drive. Anne, our host, was very nice. We liked the room and the swimming pool at the Blue Lotus. Great place.

I stayed for two nights. The rooms were lovely, comfortable, and with all necessary amenities. The wifi was free, and fast. The owners were super friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I would go back any time.

Friendly environment with warm welcoming staff, nice and quiet after a long day of travelling. Close to beach and activities. Breakfast was good and rooms a nice size as well as nicely decorated, this is ideal for business trips.

Very comfortable, friendly place to stay, near the sea front. I stayed their for the Ironman 70.3 world championships, and the owners were very supportive and friendly. I would definitely go there again.
