Staff service was excellent. Cleanliness of the accommodation and bathroom was excellent. Safety with door locks very poor to have young children. They can just open door and walk out. Beds rock hard very uncomfortable nights sleep. Children choose to sleep on the floor in stead of noisy squeaky fold out sofa. Made up bed on floor with sofa cushions for my infant!

Really impressed with our stay, we were upgraded for free, and early check in was no issue, the owner was really nice, the room was very clean, with comfortable beds and in a very quiet area just opposite the beach. I would highly recommend this place.
