          Great location and fantastic food. Our room was a little bit outdated but in good condition regardless. The beds are very comfortable. Having booked a garden view, we got to see the sea behind the trees. Would definitely come back.

          If I get the $199 deal for two nights from GroupOn, can I use it to book for weekend? Thank you.

          The best part is the view. The hotel itself is very old. Rooms are not likeable.
