The lady in the reception was really welcoming and friendly. Room was clean and nice, except that we book for 4 people, they only provided 2, but no problem when we asked for more. Fully equipped with everything you need for a trip (utensils ... cooking equipment..shampoos..).. Perfect location and very close to i-site! Great price great place

Small room, mouldy floor. We were in the room right next to reception, probably the worst room, as there were people above us - as ceiling very thin we could hear every single footstep and creaking. Not very close to cafe and main road.

This Motel is in a v. Convenient position for the beachfront & easily accessible by car. It was v.clean and comfortable and welcoming. The little kitchen area in our room could be closed off by shutting the plantation blind doors ,which was a nice touch.
