    Great location. Within walking distance to restaurants and beach. Rooms are clean, staff is helpful and friendly. With or without a pet it is the perfect place to stay. We come here every year in November for business and have always been pleased.

    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.
