Guestbook comments from the owner

"The property was was well located for a small range of high quality restuarants and had an excellent range of facilities available thorough the hotel which we all made full use of. The property was immaculate with a good range of equipment to cater for all needs.

The beaches were beautifully clean and easily accessible with a buggy making it a great beach holiday with young children. We would thoroughly recommend this as a holiday destination for a relaxing and peaceful time."

Great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Great apartments, functional with modern fittings, very clean and access to the pestina hotels facilities (pools, towels, tennis court, spa etc). Also a few minutes walk to perfect beach and if you feel adventurous take one of the small fishing boats for a cave tour. All the locals are very friendly and the area is very quite but good restaurant and bar within a few minute walk. 15 minute drive to the aqua marina or other more livley towns just 20 minutes away..staff at the hotel couldn't do more to help you some of the friendliest I have met

Had an excellent family holiday. The apartment was large enough so we didn't get under one anothers feet and the funishings were comfortable and of good quality. I enjoy cooking and found the kitchen had every thing I needed. Access to the facilities at the Viking hotel was excellent and gave the children 15 and 11 a good choice of pools and sports. I especially like the choice of salt water or fresh water pools. Having three beaches in close proximity also left us spoilt for choice and the cliff top paths were quite breathtaking. In the local area we found a variety of good quality restuarants within easy walking distance, though people should be aware there are some steep hills to negotiate. In terms of nightlife the area is quiet which suited us although the hotel does put on entertainment each night and the nearby town looks to be much more geared for partying and is only a short taxi ride away. All in all we would all be more than happy to go back.
