The rooms are very well equipped, with beach towels, flip flops, bags to take your items to the beach, toothbrushes and even a torch, there is a minibar at reasonable prices. The pool is also clean, although quite small (19x5 m). The beach... More

In fact it's an appartment because you have a kitchen, a sofa, bathroom and bedroom. Terrace is small but ok. I would go back because of the price and good location. Breakfast is nice. Yoghurt, hot dishes, salad bar, eggs,... More
