Fodor's Review

If you like cooking for yourself, consider the villas at this pleasant hotel-cum-hostel. Sitting rooms, kitchens, and terraces give you lots of room to relax; bedrooms are modern and minimalist, with king-size beds. The cheaper upstairs guest rooms are much more basic, with minimalist decor and loft bedrooms with fans instead of air-conditioners. There's also a two-bedroom family or group apartment and super-cheap accommodation in two six-bed dorm rooms. The hotel has

a pretty garden and a pool with a tight rope and swim-up bar, which is a social center for the generally young European crowd that gravitates here. There's also a communal kitchen. It's a short walk from the beach.
