What we liked most about this hotel was the staff and especially the staff in the breakfast room, they were so nice, so efficient and so helpful. Nothing seemed to be any trouble for them and we looked forward every morning to sit down and have breakfast. (Also the other members of the staff were very nice but we did not have so much contact with them!) The food of the breakfast was delicious and especially the hot buffe.
The room in the lodge was rather average and the beds were a bit firm for our tast. The room was perfectly clean. When we asked for an extra pillow and a better fan in the room (there was something wrong with the first fan) it was immediately seen to.
The location of the hotel is very good with walking distance to the beach and to the centre of the town.
