My friend and I recently stayed here in mid-May '17.

Tips

DO NOT put your personal items on lounge chairs near the pool or on the beach to reserve them. The lifeguard walks around collecting items up until approx 9:30AM! We were shocked on our first full day here because...

Sanducci's food is amazing. As I've mentioned before, I am an Italian-American who grew up in Brooklyn, so I'm very snobby when it comes to good Italian food. But this place passed the test! First, they bring you this delicious fresh bread, with a red pepper sauce. The...

Gino's food is absolutely delicious. I am an Italian-American who grew up in Brooklyn, so I'm very snobby when it comes to good Italian food. And this place hit the nail on the head. My family and I go for every occasion, and usually order the same thing every time. We...

My friend and I have been to Pimaan a handful of times, and enjoy our food every time. We get spring rolls, curry puffs, and sticky rice as appetizers. The first time we went, I had the Pad Thai as my entree and he had the Drunken Noodles. He loved his; I thought mine...

My friend, Amy, and I stayed at Vallas Apartments right next door (which I recommend!) this past month (August 2016). Our hotel manager, Vaggelis, recommended Mama Thira's when we told him we'd love to find a place to have lunch. What do I say about our experience at M...

I would highly recommend staying at the Vallas Apartments. My friend, Amy, and I stayed here in August 2016 and had a very pleasant experience.

We were met by the hotel manager, who I believe is Vaggelis Argiros, when our taxi driver dropped us off. He took our luggag...

My friend and I LOVE the food at Cuban Pete's. We've gone twice so far. The ambiance is fabulous and so much fun. Not only is it decorated like Cuba, but there are live band members walking through sporadically playing authentic music! 

Both times I got ropa vieja wit...
