very nice, good location, clean, had sea view. Nice bed, good bathroom, sizable room and balcony. Bus behind the hotel to the station, nice and friendly staff. Will visit again. Small downside, at the end of the boulevard, bit of a walk to the center.

Paid for sea view - spacious room with comfortable bed, nice patio with seating, modern shower/bath. Hotel has an outdoor bar with beautiful view of sunset on 5th floor. Hotel is on the main road by the sea/beach so there is some noise but I did not find that it disturbed my sleep.
