Sandy footprints up the main stairway carpet here always makes me smile. They offer a high standard hotel but in a relaxed way without a hint of stuffiness. The hotel has an amazing location on the beach and the hotel owners seem totally tuned into the fact people want to come here to surf, kitesurf, walk on the beach and... More

Very pleasant meal in their very busy restaurant. Despite the restaurant being packed service was excellent and the meal excellent. As usual for this part of the world a lot of fish on the menu however went for an excellent pork chop. Excellent red wine. Not cheap!
