Great spot for a holiday with fantastic views and only a short stroll to the beach. Rooms were very clean and having an onsite manager, who was so friendly, was helpful. Only downside was the beds- very uncomfortable in both the double and singles.

Great facilities with the gym overlooking the pool, half basketball court and tennis court nearby.
