5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Really love this place The beach is truly beautiful, with a little surf but not too much. Powdery white sand, comfortable loungers and peaceful. The rooms are very large and spacious, equipped with kitchenette and there is a small nice grocery store 2 mins walk away. You can hear the surf (maybe depending on which room). The bar and restaurant are right on the sand, with great food and service - open for breakfast and lunch - idyllic But best of all is the really genuine friendly service. Kati and Laurent really want to make sure you have a wonderful stay and are so helpful, and this culture flows through all the staff.

Good updated rooms. Favorite feature was the metal roll down doors that block out all light when you want. Great shower and the bed was comfortable. Aircon worked well. Very nice beach with good service. Breakfast was just okay. I miss the apple pastries they used to have. There is a little breakfast place just around the corner though. The bar closes way too early and there is nothing to do on the property after 6pm. The local restaurants are mediocre and for what you get pretty expensive. Still this is a great place to stay.

Disliked: Amenities
We booked a classic junior suite with the amenities to include a telephone, microwave and TV. Our TV worked of and on! There was no microwave and no telephone. The shower drain clogged up and created a water mess in the bathroom. I was not able to call anyone since there was no telephone - needless to say I ran to the office with just my towel - not a pretty site!! The reservation also had a “buffet breakfast” and this was great however if you ordered a side dish such as scrambled eggs it was not included. Very pricey!! Staff did not ask about our stay - disappointing as well.
