The view from an ocean view room is wonderful! We had great weather in the middle of winter which was a bonus. The rooms are basic, like a motel but nice and comfortable. The effects of the sea are showing, rusty fittings and the door sticks. The restaurant was average, overpriced and underdelivered. I would stay there again but would not eat there again.

Dinner in the Restaurant was good. Room was tired and needing both a program of maintenance and a good clean. Lack of fly screens to hold at bay the sand flies and mosquitoes.
