By far one of the most disappointing stays ever. The view from our bedroom was worse than a hostel - metal fire stairs and a dirty alley - the room was dull anyway but we had to close the curtains as this was a disgrace. Small dull room, tiny TV, very poor WiFi, very chaotic breakfast. We were on the bottom floor in the room nearest reception so we had the joy of hearing every word from every passing guest and their kids both at night and in the morning through the door which must have been made of plywood. It was fine as they seemed to settle at midnight and we slept til 8 when the breakfast traffic started! Never again!

Pros: Hotel is in a beautiful setting besides the sea.
Cons: Food Edible but nothing special. and barstaff need to be trained in providing proper glasses for drinks.
Location: If the weather is good the location is lovely. Nice walks along the beach. Couldn't find much else to do
Hotel staff very helpful especially the receptionist. Hotel it's self in great need of a make over. Our room very dull and depressing but maybe others rooms are fine. I had to complain about our bed as there was a spring protruding from the mattress . Receptionist was very nice and said it would be replaced. It was, but was worse than the first one! Didn't complain again as we were leaving that day anyway.
