I enjoyed my one night stay here. The hotel is within walking distance of the beach (i.e. across the road from it). There is unpaid public parking right outside the hotel and paid public parking on the opposite side, the side by the beach. Trying to find a spot in the unpaid public parking in the summer time is next to impossible unless you happen to be very lucky. However, there are plenty of spots on the paid side. The hotel does not have parking.
The rooms are clean and tidy and look like they have been newly furbished. The hallways are out of date. Rooms that have an ocean view also include a balcony – it’s nice to sit out and watch the sunset. Complimentary and fast wi-fi that’s easy to access everywhere within the hotel was much appreciated.
The hotel breakfast was good as it offered plenty of choice although some of the hot items had a rather unappetizing appearance.
The actual main town is about a 30 min walk away and you have to venture inwards to get away from all the tourist shops. I stumbled upon a few excellent bakeries, cafes and small shops by veering into the small streets. I even stumbled upon a market – though I have seen much nicer markets in many other cities.
Aside from the beach, there wasn’t much else to this town. A day or two here is sufficient
