Nice place, expect to climb a lot of steps, better be ready!
This accommodation is sold as a hotel/ resort. It is little more than an overpriced backpackers hostel. At night there was loads of party noise, during the day building works. The view would be superb if it weren't for all the construction everywhere. The room is very basic, reminiscent of a shanty. Shower hanging off the wall, cold water only. Bed like sleeping on slab of rock. Long walk up hills and steps to get there so be prepared although on checkout a bell boy does help with bags.
Amazing view and very friendly staff! Comfy bed, but there was noise from construction work at the hostel. The bathroom was not in the best shape, and someone from the staff was trying to get into my room at 8 in the morning, even though i had a "do not disturb"-sign hanging at the door. Many people complain about the stairs, but it was no problem for me. Overall an average experience.
The location is a bit inconvenient or secluded (depending on how you look at it). The resort is located at the top of a crazy flight of stairs. It's a good workout, but also a pain to deal with on a hot or rainy day. A bit overpriced for the atmosphere and location. There is no WiFi in the rooms, you'll need to go to the lobby. I booked a few extra days in case but didn't end up using it, they didn't want to give me a refund. I wouldn't stay here again but it wasn't a horrible experience.
