Like another reviewer, my husband and I found the hotel and the area by accident, but what a wonderful accident! For those of you looking for a low-key neighbourhood, with the cute architecture of the 50s and 60s, parks and a quiet beach, this is the place for you. The hotel itself it adorable. They have preserved the original architecture and created a lovely space out of each unit. The manager, Steve, and the assistant manager, Marie-Danielle, are friendly and helpful. The hotel provides Internet access, beach chairs, umbrellas and bicycles (bikes are old but usable), plus laundry facilities. The grounds are very pretty and well-kept. Keep in mind that this is a very small hotel with only about 10 units and the building is not new, so do not expect the luxury of a Marriot. The atmosphere is relaxed and relaxing. It is also very safe. We were never worried about taking walks at night or leaving things out in our room. Most of the guests get to know each other and take care of each other. Many return year after year. Check to see if the larger units are available for longer stays. In conclusion, if you like clean, nicely decorated, but simple (no pool), then you will be happy here. We loved it, and will definitely return. We have the feeling that we have found a little jewel.
