In front of beach. Beautiful sea view. Walking through a park. Cannot ask more. The room was refurbished and nice. Receptionists are cheerful and helpful. We only had breakfast at the hotel but reasonable quality, although coffee was not the best in the world. Bed was nice but too soft for me. Other member of my family did not have...

This place is not the most modern nor upto date. That said it was still clean and acceptable. Weird internal balcony room, actually a bit strange and privacy issues. Not a large room, but acceptable. I am sure that there are better value places aroun, but on short notice this was fine.
