At 42 euro per room per night, bed & breakfast, this is excellent value for some winter sun. Beautiful location. Stunning sea views. Lovely room with well equipped kitchenette. Luxurious bathroom. Friendly, helpful staff. I will definitely return!

Good all round hotel by the beach. Car required to move around. Rooms are decorated to a good standard and clean but decor is slightly dated. Outside pool is a mix of fresh and salt water. Buffet breakfast is good. Dinner was slightly below average and choice was limited
