how far to beach
10 minutes walk to the closet beach but it’s not very nice. There is a restaurant with a private beach 5 minutes further but it’s about €10 for a sunbed and umbrella.

Dear Eileen, We had a rental car. Given the distance I think that a taxi from the station to the hotel might be the best option. Perhaps you cancall the hotel and ask?

"Top floor with balcony and a vrie towards the sea."
"Perhaps ask to see the room before you accept it, maybe you will get a bigger, nicer room than we had."
"If you are travelling with young children you may want to consider a room away from the restaurant if there is live music"
"Our room was outside the main complex in the pool area. This was a very private spot."
"Ask for a room in the patio"
US$64 - US$234 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
