6/10 Good

There was no hairdryer in the room - and the coffee in the room was terrible. For that price we paid at least put nice coffee in the room maybe a rusk or two. the breakfast was delicious

This hotel has a terrific view of the ocean. The hotel has once been a 4-5 star hotel, but the new owner, is not keeping up this standard, which is a shame, as the staff is so nice and they are trying to do their best. The hotel needs some special care.

Ny ägare som inte riktigt förstår sig på hur Guest house fungerar. Personalen som följde med från tidigare ägare gör att det fungerar. De är mycket hjälpsamma Otrolig utsikt från den gemensamma terassen
