The hotel was nice and the location didn't bother us. It was about 25 minutes from the beach. The free parking, shuttle, and wifi certainly made up for it. We thought the breakfast was good, but would have liked more fruit variety. The room was smaller than I expected, and the bath tub and shower were underwhelming.
There was miscommunication on arrival as I had booked a room with a terrace (and had confirmed by email ahead of time) but ended up with a room with a balcony that you can't sit on. This was promptly fixed and we were given a room with a terrace which we ended up using a lot - perfect setting for a nice quiet breakfast.
We heard that the hotel was recently bought by a chain and we were told that the free shuttle may not stay with the change over, which would be a shame.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
