We were booked into the Seafront as a part of a package, so it wasn't our choice. However, we did get good sleep and the included breakfast was fantastic. Nice view over the sea was a good bonus. On the downside, a lack of a restaurant for dinner limited our choice for an evening meal at the local pub. The...

We had a Sorrento's Room upstairs with beautiful views across the water to the mainland. Stairs where a bit steep and narrow to carry our bags up but once there the room was very nice and clean with plenty of room and nice ensuite. Included a nice buffet breakfast. Not a lot of choices but still good and they cooked...

Stayed one night. The one bedroom villa is large enough for 4 people Has a fully equipped kitchen, but it does need better cleaning. The water kettle and cups need to be replaced or deep clean. No view from the villa as it is located in the garden area, but it is ok. Wifi is weak in the villa, but...

Clean, comfortable and friendly with breakfast choices in morning at varying prices, but the cereal, fruit and coffee very adequate and cheap. Not handy though for main tourist spots as a long was to main...

Good location, a sort distance from the ferry landing. Easy walk to the downtown crossroad and the few restaurant choices in town. Rooms were spacious and clean but need some maintenance. The breakfast was included and was fine.

Convenient because it's close to the ferry. We had a 1Bdr Villa, it was clean and comfortable. The staff is really friendly ! As soon as we arrived, we spotted dolphins swimming right in front of the hotel. If you arrive late on the island or leave KI early, this is the place to be. We stayed 2 nights :...

A lovely Hotel, right on the beach side with such a great view. Comfortable rom with a lot of facilities, just like a king dokken bed and some super fast internet connection. I've loved the staff's service, very kind and accurate.

Kind of old and a little raggedy. Comfy. Clean. Nice views. The restaurant was closed so we went down the street. The breakfast was included and a very nice surprise. Fresh eggs, good coffee. Really nice staff. The pool was not usable yet.

We stayed here for 2 nights in early November. Straight off the ferry, up the road and it's there on the left hand side. We were allocated a ground floor room which had spectacular sea views from the outside seating area. Lovely king size bed, sofa, dining table and tea and coffee making facilities with a mini bar if needed....

Hotel close to the ferry and clean and tidy looking from the outside, reception check in was friendly and efficient. We had sea view room (No: 9) and it was clean and comfy for two nights stay, your bed is made daily but nothing else was touched so the tea cups we used were just left, rubbish I left out...
