It is nicey located close to the sea. Just one restaurant in walking distance. Okey to stay for one night. Rooms are quite big and on the area it is a nice small pool and cosy places with fireplace. But very bad breakfast.

I believe there are maybe at the most 10 units on the whole property. Besides the pool area which is not really big the parking lot would be your only other area to gather.
