We started with a misunderstanding about our having booked a downstairs room but this was amicably resolved. After this everything was good. Our host carried the suitcases upstairs and, at the end of our stay, downstairs. The beds were extremely comfortable and we enjoyed an excellent night's sleep. Breakfast was the best I had all week. Highly recommended.

This is a great place to stay. We were in the family rooms which are spacious and perfect for older children. They were very clean and well equipped with fans and extra pillows. The beach is a very short walk away and really nice. Would definitely recommend
