You can't get any closer to the beach that this.Simple,quiet and clean. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us and addressed every question and request. Also enjoyed their a/c and plenty of hot water. If you looking for fancy this is not,but we found it very comfortable and will certainly return at the first opportunity.

We stayed with the family four days. We left completely pleased. The bosses are amazing people. The service the same. Overlooking the sea from our windows and walk on the beach in 10 seconds. No need to say anything else!
