I stayed for 5 nights in August with two young teens. I would definitely recommend this hotel, though travelers need to know what to expect. You are about 30 minutes from the main town via taxi (about 50 min. via bus, which conveniently stops right in front) so if you're looking for a city environment or a lot to do in walking distance, this is not the place for you. The beach in front of the hotel, while pretty, isn't that great for swimming, but there are fantastic swimming beaches a short distance away (or about a 15-20 minute walk). Beach tip - we loved the beach at the end of the dirt road where they rent umbrellas; fabulous big sandy beach great for swimming. The hotel was filled with families with kids enjoying the pool when we were there, which was great for us, but if you want a quiet adult place, I would look elsewhere. That said, the location was absolutely lovely and there are 3 good restaurants right there (including the hotel's restaurant, which is pricey). The rooms were spotless but are not that big - upgrade if you want more space. We found the staff to be great, going out of their way at every turn to help out. If you rent a car (which you really do need if you intend to do any exploring), definitely have it delivered to the hotel (which they will happily do) so you avoid the extra taxi ride into town. Also know that you are expected to be there when they deliver the car, even if it's at 10:30 in the evening the night before your rental actually starts (seems obvious but we weren't really planning on it). If you're looking for a somewhat remote, quiet (except for families) place, I would highly recommend the Finikas.
