One night stay
Nice location, lovely view of ocean and very quiet room. We only stayed overnight but it would be a great location for a holiday base to do day trips from.

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
I found the room comfortable. The TV was not working well, but the manager changed the batteries in the remote and it was okay. The booklets and the shampoo were out of my reach and the towel rail in the bathroom was missing.
