Our room was very clean and comfortable with a nice little area where we could sit outside. We had planned to go to a local restaurant which unfortunately was closed at the time of our visit. We were recommended...

I took my Mum here 3 years ago(only just googled it again), and to us is one of the best places we have stopped in in Europe over the past three years, I really do not need to write anymore, you will certainly not be disappointed, especially breakfast time, beautiful place and venue for beaches, sand, cliffs and sun, brilliant.

There was a free minibar in the room and a complimentary bottle of...
