Hotel is all in all nice. Actually exclusively german holiday-makers, all a very good wire to owner Anke had. We were the youngest with 22 years... Friendliness of the staff, beauty of the location and surroundings, beach etc. (which very often praised) is, of course, everything was ok and available, but not so as it is if you by the comments here flashed is. Accordingly we were rather a bit disappointed on the first day (see afterwards as well). …  read hotel review

We have been coming to this hotel for 5 years and the main reason is because of the wonderful treatment by Anke and staff. It always feels like we are staying with really good friends. The sea view from our balcony is outstanding and each morning the breakfast is lovely. We love staying here and would never think of staying anywhere else in the village. We all were in tears when we had to leave!! read hotel review
