Hot water bottles, electric blankets, a visit by the doctor, making sure... More

Beautiful location near but not on the beach. The breakfast were great with plenty of food. The staff was also very kind and responsive to our needs. I had a room on the second floor with a terrific view and large rooms. Thanks so much for a pleasant experience.
