There is no 24hr reception so you have to call someone to let you in, which is ok if you have a mobile but it's expensive to use your phone abroad and I often leave mine at home- would have been stuck! Also find it surprising- never known any b&b/hotel not to have someone always on site.
Great views of the sea but- lethally steep stairs and the beds were very uncomfortable. No aircon which was a major problem but we had no option to leave as were on a tour.
Didn't use the pool but as mentioned was very small and overlooks the car park.
Breakfast was pretty standard.
Very friendly but won't stay here again.
