The hotel is directly across the street from the beach, but it's a rocky beach. The nicer beach is about a 20 minute walk, which isn't bad unless you're schlepping little kids and all that they require. The hotel smelled a little funny, which I think can be attributed to their water. It smells and tastes terrible. The shower water alternated between spurts of ice-cold and scalding-hot every five seconds or so, and the actual shower was pretty gross - some mold/mildew and rusty spots. All of the quadruple rooms have a view of the "courtyard" instead of the water. The "courtyard" is the concrete center of the building, with rusty steps and lots of noise from the kitchen. The beds were ok. Lots of storage in the room. Decent breakfast provided. Overall, I don't think it was worth the money. Lots of other, nicer options.
