A lovely large guest house with rooms attached to the main building as well as in annexes. A very well kept pool area. The room was spacious and light with a shared verandah as well as a fully equipped small kitchen area with microwave and fridge. Excellent Manager and staff with a good selection of both hot and cold food for breakfast served in a lovely breakfast area overlooking the pool. There is an honesty bar and snacks available throughout the day. Close to the seafront and walkable to bars and resaurants. Would definitely return
