The American diner is first class offering burgers, hot dogs, etc in the evening it is also the breakfast room. Decked with masses of quality paraphernalia including an original 1959 juke box it's the real... More

We stay in the SC apartment but breakfast in the main hotel... More

We stayed in the apartment, which was beautifully decorated and spacious. Home from home but holiday feel. Access to wet suits and surf boards, which is an added bonus. As we arrived our mouths fell open at the appearance, clean and fresh. When the windows are slightly open, you can hear the sea which was most enjoyable. You can sit... More
