Set back from the main road, the gardens and terraces of Moonlight Hotel provide a typically Greek and tranquil holiday haven. This is where you’ll enjoy your continental breakfast, afternoon drinks and pre-dinner cocktails. Primarily aimed at over-16s, this quaint hotel doesn’t have its own pool but you can use one at a neighbouring hotel. As well as the peace and quiet, you’ll love the sea views. Admire them from the bar, veranda or garden. You have a restaurant, bar and shops within a short walk and a lovely sandy beach is just across the road.
