Great continental breakfast with newspapers available to read. Room was clean. They had a kitchen set-up but no dishes for eating or cooking. Week day staff friendly and helpful. Weekend staff needs a little work on being more customer oriented with a helpful smile.0.

No, there are no beds at the beach but it is very close to it (1 street). It has a small space in the middle of the hotel with some chairs and tables but not really to sunbathe, just to have some relax there.

I think you should probably bring your own child seat. The bicycles are pretty basic.
