Cheap and basic. Quite cheap but definitely very basic. I found hair in the bath, a big hole in the sheets, and poor (I mean poor) breakfast. Other than that, the family running the place is sweet and helpful.

Breakfast is very monotnous... More

Close to beach, easy access by bus (only 2 euro ticket) to the center. Clean and quiet place with very friendly staff. I was there in May and what was really important to me there was no children at all so I could really rest
