          Wretched place - dark, dingy, depressing, don't stay there. Costs as much as good hotels nearby. We couldn't wait to get out. Only advantage was adjoining free car parking and they let us leave the car there all day.

          Good location by the beach and parking lot. No internet available. The room was smelly and the duvet was even more smelly. Bedsheets had not been ironed ( or they were used!). Expensive for what it offers.
