Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Acceptable accomodation
Front desk staff was friendly and very helpful. The place could use a bit if tlc. It was very close to a neighbouring property and it felt a bit awkward when you would come down the stairs and be looking straight into their house. Very close to beach and a short walk to town. Nothing wrong with it, but just fine.

It was just by the sea so the view from our balcony was great. Everything was clean and tidy, except for the hair dryer- it was a bit dusty
