This hotel is fantastic for it's location, like everyone says it is close to everything, but quiet enough to sleep at night. I really liked our room. It was hand painted with a sea theme and I liked the rustic dark wood furniture. The shower room was good too. It was all adequate and just what we needed for a 3 night stay!
Breakfast was basic but I quite liked just having toast and juice so it suited my boyfriend and I fine. The only thing that bothered me was that some of the staff could not speak a word of English! I am not expecting fully English speaking staff but to be able to express some sentences would have been helpful. One morning my boyfriend asked for more jam and the waitress came back with an ash tray? I also noticed another couple getting annoyed because they were asking for more cutlery but kept being given menus! I can see how it is frustrating. On another note the rooms are cleaned daily but the floors are never swept at all. Considering most guests are using the beach, like we did, for most of our stay we had to walk around with gritty feet in our apartment.
We did like our stay here on the whole. Oh and if you have a car you will be asked to pay 25 dollars a night to park it in their car park.
