This small hotel, with only a few rooms, all facing the sea, is deliciously remote from about anything else. In front: the cold Atlantic, with active bird life and seals (lots, given the nearby huge colony), behind: the desert - a stark but beautiful landscape (an excusion to the Messum crater is highly recommended - fantastic landscapes and eerily quiet). The hotel is of high quality, the restaurant has a set menu for dinner (lunch is a la carte), but food is good, and breakfast the common buffet with plenty of options. Being on the coast it can be surprisingly chilly at night, and with wind blowing even during the day, but that's a nice respite of the heat that can be experienced just inland. All in all a fantastic place for a romantic get-away!
