We had a great stay, a pity it was so short. Will definitely go back again. The room was something very special and we were made to feel at home from the time we arrived there. Breakfast was a delight.

Clean, neat, nice food nothing is to much trouble. Extended our stay because of the awesome hospitality, very safe and then of course the most amazing breakfasts. The owners and staff make sure they stay in contact with their guests and are constantly looking for ways to improve your stay.

Firstly, although this place is across the street from the beach you do have to walk.....about 3 minutes to actually get to the beach. Also, we had a family room which doesn't really have a "sea view". But those are the closest things to a complaint I can find. Our room and bathroom were spacious and well appointed. With the...
