When: August 2008

Great beach front hotel {3 stars}

We stayed at Villa Gaia for 10-night stay and were thrilled with our accommodations.

In the past we have found hotels near the sea to be substandard to their ratings. Villa Gaia delivered its 4-star rating.

The hotel has a small bar, dining room and lounge with TV. Our room was very large and included a couch, desk and king size bed and balcony. Our bathroom was HUGE. The room featured tons of storage space bathroom and closet space - came in handy for our extended stay. The hotel was very clean which can be hard to maintain with guests trekking in sand from the beach every day. The shower had strong water pressure with lots of hot water. The a/c worked very well as well.

The breakfast buffett was ample and since it was August we ate outdoors overlooking the beach. The staff is great. The hotel is located along the beach front. This area was quieter and cooler than the historic center but the center is only a 5-10 minute walk. There is wi-fi in the lobby for 2 euros per hour.

We paid 190 euros a night in peak season of August. The rate included breakfast, parking and lounges/umbrella at Poseidon Beach Club.
