Quiet central location just one block from beach. Next to Marina and wharf. Friendly front desk, good breakfast selection. Loved the free bicycles. Room spotlessly clean, comfortable and beautiful bathroom. Hubby loved the rainshower too.

No, there are no beds at the beach but it is very close to it (1 street). It has a small space in the middle of the hotel with some chairs and tables but not really to sunbathe, just to have some relax there.

I think you should probably bring your own child seat. The bicycles are pretty basic.
