This is a no frills hotel. The rooms are a bit old fashioned and could use some updates but it's exactly what we wanted, a simple quiet hotel by the beach. You get an average breakfast with something for everyone, daily cleaning of the rooms, a nice pool area, and a direct path to the beach (300 meters) through the dunes.
The hotel has two floors, with the rooms in the ground level having direct access to the pool area. The rooms in the first floor get a glimpse of the ocean. As the hotel has few rooms (22) there is never a lot of activity or noise.
The thing we disliked the most was the lack of a minibar or mini refrigerator that would be very useful for storing cold drinks, yogurts and other snack items that we usually buy and keep in our room to make sandwiches to take to the beach or small trips on the area. Specially for people with kids this can be a bummer.
The staff was helpful and discreet, and gave us references for a nice restaurant and a great ice-cream shop which we visited several times.
Considering the location we think it's good value for money and are thinking about coming back next year.
