Lots of apartments perched on a hillside looking out to sea mostly. Short walk to beach which was lovely even if they charge 7 euros for a brolly and two beds ! Walking distance to main town area 10 minutes. Many apartments too high up steep stone stairs which any but the fit would find difficult. Ask for lower levels...

The night receptionist managed...

We are currently at the Ariadne Beach, we are in a superior room and cannot fault it.

We did a lot of checking online before choosing this hotel and I can confirm that the positive feedback about Ariadne is true. The room we had was really nice and had lots of space, also a beautiful view of the sea from our balcony. I'd recommend paying a bit extra for the premium rooms. The hotel was kept very...
