We should have known better and not stayed here given that the owner had not officially opened it for the season. However, the owner had agreed to allow us to stay in one of her "self-catered" apts. The front of the Hotel has a wonderful view of the Atlantic Ocean (the hotel sits up on a hill about a kilometer from the "village". ) Unfortunately, we were put in one of the apartments in the back of the facility, our bedroom window looked out at the courtyard and the window in the kitchen looked out at the back of a barn garage...very unattractive. Given that we were the only tenants, you would have thought the owner would have put us in the best location. We were suppose to stay for three night, but after that one night we left. We also found the accomodations just adequate. The apartment beds were old, the main living area had a dining room table and two chairs to sit in to watch TV and the bathroom which was off the kitchen had no heat. Maybe in the height of the season, this would be a better place. It was kind of spooky to be the only ones there.
