We stayed in room 101 on the ground floor. Room had twin beds,wardrobes, dressing table,hair dryer and basic kitchen facilities. Room was clean and had plenty of space for us. Front and rear terraces. Whilst there is no bar or pool on site the beach is 1 minute walk. Close to plenty of bars and restaurants. We will definitely return.
