Close to the main Cafe strip. Only a short walk to the beach, on a fairly quiet side street. Friendly and helpful staff in reception. Would be happy to stay again.

My room was immaculately - and I mean immaculately! - clean and well prepared. Some had taken time to carefully arrange and present each part of it: from the snowy white towels to the smaller things like flawless grout and the way the cutlery was laid out. Mid century design with lots of light. Well positioned for beach and eateries. A gem.
