Small fridge and microwave available in the room. TV remote in need of replacing, was unable to turn down volume, could only change channels. We had a balcony...

Nobody else was having breakfast only 4 others having drinks. Servings were on the small side. Staff were friendly but disorganized. A nice spot for...

A place to sleep or if you get lucky one night at the pub. But not a place to be inspired by. We stayed 3 nights and the staff were good and helpful. The best thing about it is that the beach is right in front of the hotel. It needs to be renovated.

Thanks for your comments and yes we are building a new motel which will be completed in 12 months. It will be 100 meters north of our current position and still on the beach front. It will be 3 levels and have a pool on the roof. Very exciting times ahead.
