a great welcome and tour of the property.the room was first floor good private views, and very comfortable . The whole atmosphere is politely laid back and nothing too much trouble . A extremely good restaurant was recommended , which was fabulous, and it provided ataxi both ways. A definite stop over again .

We only stayed for a night but the location is right on the beach. The staff were friendly and very accomodating. Premises were clean. Would definitely recommend this place. Breakfast was great and the self catered apartment has everything you need.

Everything was perfect for our time with our grandsons from arrival to leaving. The food was delish and our flat clean and fully kitted. The view and 20m to the sea was super. Lizanne was so helpful,.
