    Stayed 10 days, plenty of space, comfortable, and clean. Laundry with dryer meant task finished easily. Body and surf boards available to use, walking distance to beach. One can walk to supermarket and central parade, but a car does make getting around easier.

    (+) Friendly staff, fairly good location not too far from the main areas of interest. (-) Didn't really like staff's first recommended restaurant, hah. Not really a minus- more a question of different taste.
