This is an outdated hotel, in a lovely location on the beach front, with small rooms, and fairly basic facilities. What sets it apart for me is the standard of the staff on the front desk. Having booked a room a year ago, they insisted it was for the next night not the night we were there (despite our agents confirming exact details). We were subsequently refused credit at the bar because we hadn't pre-authorised a credit card, which the reception staff had omitted to mention. When queried, they advised it was because a lot of their customers left without paying their bills! In the morning on check out, they took an extra copy of my credit card for the same reason, which is a very dubious practice anywhere, and has given me great concerns as to the real purpose. Very poor quality reception staff, and not somewhere we would ever want to stay again.
