Located in the Hotel Paula’s old digs, the four-star San Giorgio has ten rooms (three standard doubles, six junior suites, and a deluxe). When it opened in April 2008 it instantly became one of the nicest lodging options on the island. Factor in friendly, English-speaking staff plus the wonderful restaurant Boccadoro and the sum total is attractive for both new and returning island customers.
The Issa is a boxy, modern structure with 256 beds that offers low-frills resort-style digs. There are tennis and sports courts, and equipment rental, including bikes and diving gear, nearby. It’s right by the main downtown beach. Air-conditioning is only available in the pricier rooms – it is worth ordering during the summer season. Phone, balcony and satellite TV are provided in each.
