Recent reviews

Very good 8,2 From 103 reviews

Fair 4,0
This hotel was not clean and the condition was terrible. If it wasn’t for the very friendly surf instructor I would have asked for a refund. We had a private room and it was in terrible condition - poorly maintained.

Relaxing and affordable.
The cylinder is fun for just one night, otherwise pick a traditional room. Convenient location and nice staff. Quiet and relaxing off season.
