Great sea view. Very relaxing atmosphere and the staff were kind enough to prepare a delicious meat-free breakfast separately given our halal food needs. Very warm and welcoming hosts. Safe secure parking. Walking distance from the beach.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights. Our room had the best view and we spotted some whales in the ocean. Unfortunately the room was not what we expected. The bed was uncomfortable, the TV was very old and made a horrible noise. The towels provided had holes in them. Not what we expected for a 4 star... More
