8/10 Very good

great location for driving to western beaches.
This is a medium size hotel on a rocky strip of beach in a small beach town. Nice atmosphere but if crowded there is not much space between rooms, chairs on the patio or beach. Pools spaced throughout property is a nice touch. Best part was the location- good driving distance to many great western beaches. Food is okay. Servers working hard during trying times. Several restaurants nearby but not all opened back up after Covid. 3.5 stars. 4 for location.

You couldnt fault the staff, they were so friendly and helpful. We were aware until 4 days prior to departure that the hotel was closing. It was very quite, rooms pleasant but dated. We enjoyed our stay overall but it didnt meet expectations of a 4 star hotel

Adults Only hotel right on the beach.
We had a ten night stay which was extremely relaxing and quiet. The hotel was excellently placed with a 20 second walk to the beach. The staff were very polite, helpful and efficient. Some of the rooms were allocated lie out beds next to a pool otherwise it was first come first served. The lie outs on the beach were rented out at 2.50 euros per day. We left feeling calm and relaxed with a healthy tan thrown in.

Best hotel / beach access in the area
This hotel is a lovely place to spend time and has bus pick ups outside which the local tour operators come to directly so you can survive without a car. Everyone was friendly and the week passed by seemingly too quickly.
