Fodor's Review

Although it's not on the beach, this Italian-owned hotel has style at an affordable price, with ocher-color villas spread out around a pretty pool, gardens, and lawn. It's a great place for families or groups. Large glass doors bring in lots of light, and the fans hung from high wooden ceilings keep things cool. The well-equipped apartments sleep four, six, or eight people, and have handsome fabrics and bathrooms tiled in cool green. Continental breakfast is included in

the room rate; apartments and suites have their own kitchens where guests make their own meals.There's no restaurant, but a few good restaurants are nearby, including. It's a five-minute walk from the hotel through the village to the beach.
