Thanks to the staff at the hotel for a very nice stay. Everyone was very friendly and they had good measures in place to keep everyone safe from COVID. The food was better than expected and the hotel was in a nice location. I would go back and recommend others support this business in these difficult COVID times!

Beware, the rating on thr hotel isnt a true reflection of what you get There are other hotels i would recommend for the same price that will provide a much cleaner beach, sun beds whose matresses arent torn and food and beverages that are much better. Disappointed
