2/5 Poor

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The room is overpriced and extremely small. When we turned up at the door on the day, we were told insistently that we’d found the wrong place twice until we showed them your confirmation letter. The owner lady hadn’t checked first before her refusal of our entrance and made us feel so unwelcome. If it’s not because of the time of the day and our exhaustion, we’d have left and found another place. My husband and I are greatly disappointed.

Would come back to stay!
This place was lovely and spacious and very friendly. The beach run in the morning was my absolute’s a short jog to miles and miles of pristine beach. My only warning is for the ladies with long hair...bring your own conditioner! The type they had in the shower didn’t work at all and I had a ‘rat’s nest’ until the next time I washed it with my own conditioner.
