The thing that makes this place great is the welcome by the hosts as you arrive, constantly cheery and helpful service, and the gobsmacking location. Barbequeing on the beach, watching the waves anyone? We went in early spring, and despite rainy days, the location and relaxed beachy feel of the motel was excellent. Really tidy, well kept units, good cooking facilities in the rooms, great views and location.
Bit of a stretch to call it a resort, mind you. It's a motel. Our unit's fixtures were feeling a little tired, but really, are you there to judge the quality of the shower and the light fixtures? They're tidy, they work, they're well kept. No, you're there to look at the sea, have another wine, go for another stroll on the beach, and plan another day of adventure or relaxation with the excellent advice of the hosts.
(Beds are very soft, by the way. Restless sleeper couples may want to make sure their room has a couple of bed options.)
