This hotel is set in beautiful gardens and has a lovely pool. The rooms are simple but have nice balconies and are clean and well maintained. Location is great, just a short walk to the cliff. Staff were attentive and friendly.

However, it is a short walk from the beach. Food: Food was average. Nothing great to write about especially They could do with some better preparation of the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and as it was so hot at the beach it was great to be able to laze around the pool in the shade. Quiet, friendly and cheap for a hotel and food was good. Close to beach and cliff tops bars and restaurants.
