    Was nice being next to the beach. Accomodation was as expected for the price. There was a mildew smell in our room but the room seemed clean. Breakfast was basic but a nice touch. The beach was lovely and not crowded so that was great.More

    Rooms are very clean. If you like retro, this is your place. Steps away from the beach, can't beat the price. I will definitely be back! Room was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was huge. Store and a couple of restaurants also in walking distance.
