Our opinion

Although basic, the hotel has everything you need to be comfortable. It is well located for the younger traveller who wants to experience the local nightlife or those who like to adventure out at meal times. The surrounding area has everything you need in terms of entertainment. Another bonus is that you are able to swim in the sea at all times, as this area is not affected by the tides, which makes for perfect swimming.
