We had high expectations from the pictures & details we checked on the site prior to booking.Upon arrival at the gates this was dashed as we saw the shabby entrance...this continued as we tried to avoid the potholes to park.!!

Even in the room there were missing light bulbs. As for the welcom...

We were told that breakfast will be light (crossaints) as it's holidays, (really now, our money is not on holiday)... Gave them a benefit of the doubt and hoped for atleast decent crossaints, to our surprise they only had jam and grated cheese... Served with the...

We enjoyed it there very much! Very beautiful ocean view from our room and very good and friendly hostess. Very peaceful and not too busy beach. We would recommend it!
