The place is not on the sea anymore ! Houses were built in between. No view at all. Noisy place no insulation between apartment woke at six in the morning due to noise from upper apartment On top of that a noisy road with many trucks on you front door

Close to the beach but no view from the hotel. Fairly comfortable but rooms could use updating, particularly the bathroom.

Lovely and comfortable
We were just staying one night but staff was very helpful in answering questions. It is very close to the beach so we were able to go for a walk and watch the sunset.
