    Visited this place for breakfast, it was ok, nothing special. Service was barely awake. The location of the restaurant is on the beach, probably the only reason it has customers. No recommendation, would only return by mistake.

    I just booked a double room for April of 2015. After reading some of the reviews on the site that I booked my reservations on, I am concerned about the sewer stench a few of the reviewers complained about. Is that going to be a factor?? Have you been able to correct this problem? Also, my husband cannot climb up stairs to get into bed, are there beds on the ground level? Thanks, Jan
