    Unfortunately, our "room with the sea view" had instead a view on the dirty roof, with the sea somewhere behind...And there was no anti-mosquito protection on the windows, neither any anti-mosquito product in the room. It's pretty bad for a hotel situated so close to the water - the room was full of this flying beasts 2 seconds after you open the balcony door. Room is in need of some renovation, too - it looks like nothing had been changed there sins it was built many years ago. Breakfast was ok, but a bit overpriced for what we had.

    The main reason to choose this hotel is its location just in front of the sea. The view from some rooms and from the breakfast room was nice. They have a big parking just in front, too.

    Sadly I didn't feel that it was worth the money for a small Single Room without minibar (fridge) or safe. My pillowcases and linen where old, torn and stained and the deco pillow was beyond help, it looked disgusting. So I asked for new pillowcases and linen. They were changed but I was told that the others were clean too, which they might have been but the bed felt dirty and not welcoming. I also had a problem with the light in the room, but since there was a reading light it was deamed enough for solving the problem the next day. I don't feel that the Single Rooms live up to the Standard of the rooms for couples as you also have to climb a little wodden staircase in the night entrance area to reach it. I was quite disappointed by that as it was meant as a retreat for myself.

    Location was great, once one had climbed up the dune to the hotel. There was a lot of choice at the breakfast buffet. Bed in Single room was wide.

    Breakfast was excellent, abundant with plenty of choice (freshly squeezed orange juice!). Location was great, our room had a view on the beach with direct access to the shore.

    The Hotel Needs definitely a renovation. Old chairs, old beds, very used matrasses (pain in my back). No rooms without a carpet, so there is a bit of smell in the air. They Charge for almost everything. The Price is definitely too high for what you get. During this Holidays we stayed in 5 Hotels. This Hotel was the most expensive and worst. We definetely will not come back here.

    The view is the only really nice in the Hotel except the breakfast.

    Very spacious rooms with a wonderful comfortable bed, pillows and covers. We slept very well. The view over the sea was lovely and although it was windy when we were there a quick breath of fresh air on the balcony was enjoyable. We spent one night here prior to our ferry journey to UK but the place is equally good for a resort holiday with lots of facilities at the hotel and the surrounding beaches are wonderful and well maintained.

The shower room had been updated, excellent shower, but the shower floor was extremely slippery when wet. There were no bath towels. Overall quite basic and at Euro 135 per night without breakfast it cannot be regarded as good value for money.
