I was in a rather large wedding party that had completely booked the entire hotel. The hotel itself is nice.
It's very quiet, and the location is excellent for the area, although the area doesn't have much going on. The rooms are small and without many amenities, but they are very clean and the basics are covered. Also, there's no WiFi. I believe there were individual connections in the room you could connect a wire too for an additional, and from I remember, outrageous per minute price.
Honestly, I'd be tempted to give this place 4 stars (even without amenities) if the customer service hadn't been so atrocious. They offer a dine-in breakfast service that must, apparently, be ordered the night before. This was not conveyed to most of us staying there (our groups fault, not really management), but the next morning when I went to a patisserie to bring back some breakfast for myself and a friend I was barred from entering the hotel. The manager threw a fit because we hadn't ordered the breakfast service, and made no exceptions. So I and a few others ended up eating breakfast on the beach (not terrible) instead of eating and getting dressed for the wedding. I guess the other thing is that just about all local businesses shutdown by 9pm. If you know you'll be getting in later, or like to midnight snack, keeping food in your room would be the only way to do it. In this case, you'd be out of luck.
Additionally, after the wedding, a group of us congregated in what appeared to be the communal lobby of the hotel. This lobby, apparently, is right down the hall from the proprietor and his wife. We weren't overly rowdy, although we may have gotten a little loud at times, but the proprietor came out and demanded that we all go to bed. It's a small hotel, granted, but I've never stayed anywhere that there wasn't a place to congregate after hours. Options were to go to a room that was too small for 7 people to sit in (they're really very small, but manageable) with paper-thin walls, or go back to the beach which would have been an option if it hadn't been so cold.
All in all, and trying to remain fair and balanced, the place is quiet, clean, and generally nice for a quiet relaxing trip, but if you go in a large party I'd advise you to stay away.
