We booked a garden-facing cottage at the Melina Beach Resort and spent two days in an environment that's so very different from what I have experienced anywhere else. This place is not a bed and breakfast inn or a hotel or a hostel. Melina is a family and it has all it takes to make your vacation lovely and calm. It's definitely not for the party-loving youth. It's for those who like spending hours at the beach with a book in their hands or who wish to take a break from their regular lives, gaze at the sunrise and the sunset and sense the magnificence of beaches, their fine sands and the clear water.
