Had an ok stay here in August, but really disappointed by the advertised amenities that don't hold true for the winter months. The pool is FREEZING, not the promised 30 degrees, internet didn't work, restaurant closes early, reception closes early, bistro closes early, laundry closes early, so don't plan your day by the advertised times. Essentially by 8 pm there's nothing to do but stay in your room and watch tv, which was a cheap unit with only 11 channels so choices were limited. Movie channels were nice, but easily go on the fritz. With no one at reception we had to figure out how to fix it ourselves. (Change the channel for 5 seconds then change it back, and voila! You need to keep doing this for the remainder of the night tho...)
The beds were comfy, with pretty bedding and separate bed warmers for each side of the queen bed. Bathroom was nice, great heat lamp but slippery tiles in the shower.
Room was clean, location was great, you can hear penguins chattering across the highway, all in all an ok stay. But there were nicer places near the beachfront that were less expensive. Will try them next time.
