Very nice hotel, clean, pleasant. No TV in the room in case you want some entertainment. Small bathrooms, but very clean. Hotel staff accomodating though not very friendly. Restaurant slow but food is good. Definitely a great hotel to sit on the beach, watch the sunset, and relax. Definitely recommend!
