Great location on the beach, quit, clean, friendly staff. You need to have your own transportation, 10 minutes driving from the city center. We stayed 5 nights, definetely will go back.

10/10 Exceptional

This hotel is excellent for resting. There is no bar, no area with music nor entertaining program. The bathrooms are very small, uncomfortable and inconvenient for the price. However, the hotel and the surroundings are beautiful, very clean, quiet, and has the best staff.

6/10 Good

notre chambre se situait dans le bâtiment principal, plutôt très luxueuse , l'endroit manque hélas de confort , il semble que le propriétaire est fait un choix d'esthétisme ultra minimaliste ou seuls les marbres et pierres sont en vedettes dans un volume est bien pensé . Peu de place au confort ou l'aspect pratique ( pas de canapé, pas de table, pas de cafetière et pas d'extérieur véritablement ), les chambres sont dotées d'une sorte de balcon "troglodyte" difficile d'accès non meublé. tout y est piloté par domotique tv, lumière volets fenêtre , pas évident pour les non initiés . petit déjeuner copieux et servi avec le sourire , par contre le restaurant est loin de mériter le déplacement a 90euros par personne on pourrait espérer mieux , même si la terrasse est magnifique. très agréable l'accès direct a une plage privée et surveillée. le désagrément est la musique quasi permanente de l'hotel voisin et les utilisateurs de téléphone portable qui envahissent votre espace sonore . Il est difficile voir impossible de se promener sur le bord de mer car chaque établissement a cloisonné son espace .
