    The view from the hotel is amazing, the staff is very friendly and capable (especially if you compare it to the staff at all the other restaurants at the bay), everything was very clean, breakfast was included and good, and all this for a good price. Surf classes are available at the beach.

    Bed too hard. Shower not attached to wall. Hairdryer not working. No air conditioning. If window left open the sea waves are noisy. Rooms are small and too hot if all doors and windows closed.

    Friendly, obliging and efficient staff. Food was excellent. Breakfast was served by happy and friendly waitress. Evening meals available seated by the sea in a warm atmosphere. Easy walks with wonderful views of sea and hills including Eagle Rock and other rock formations.

    The bedding needs to be replaced (old string matrasses). Our room was just next to the reception and as the rooms are not sound proof, it was not the calmest place to be. Internet would only work properly at the entrance of the bedroom. Breakfast à la carte allows you to pick up what you really feel like eating but when there are more than 3 people at breakfast before you, it takes a lot of time and easily ruins your schedule.

    The staff was really nice and the view from the room astonishing. The waitress at breakfast was just adorable!

    The only thing that could have made things better would have been to have tea and coffee facilities in the room: breakfast wasn't served until 8am and the ability to have a cup of tea when waking up would have been lovely!

    The two lovely ladies on reception could not have been more helpful and patient - they both really made my stay so much easier and more pleasant. The hotel is beautifully sited and the sea view rooms have stunning views - the picture included is the view from my balcony on a December afternoon. My room was simply furnished but had more than adequate room, and it was spotlessly clean. The balcony was plenty big enough to sit comfortably outside in the sun. Breakfasts were generous and freshly cooked, with speedy service. Excellent value for money - I'd recommend this hotel to anyone.
