Great location right on the beach. Room was a decent size with a bath/shower, fridge, A/C, lockable safe, free Wi-Fi and clean. Buffet breakfast was excellent with plenty of restaurants nearby by for lunch and dinner. A decent size pool with plenty of seating. Staff very helpful. All in all a good base to explore the island and excellent value.

... carrying big automatic weapons. They were probably the friendliest people we talked to. Our first flight was from Amman to Athens. Then we had a few hours to hang out at the airport until we took a propeller plane to Santorini, a volcanic island to the far south and a huge tourist destination during high season. The flight turned out to be only about a half an hour long, and since the ferry ride would have been almost 8 hours, I'm glad we took that ...
