We stayed in March 2013. It is a very affordable hotel in an amazing location. The view is spectacular and you go to sleep with the sound of the waves. The breakfast was quite good: a mixture of cereals, breads, cheese and ham with limited hot food. The rooms were quite large but in desperate need of updating. Only one of our plug sockets worked which was annoying when trying to charge phones, ipads, ds etc. There was also a problem with ants particularly in the bathroom which I found very annoying. There was no hairdryer or kettle in the rooms but you could rent them from reception. The indoor swimming pool was right beside the snack bar downstairs so you had to walk through the snack bar to swim. We did not use it as there was a large insect floating in it and did not appear clean.
