The place had obviously only recently opened and was clearly not ready to take guests. It is done out in a very chic fashion, however it gives the impression of trying too hard to be cool and not quite succeeding. The rooms are very fashionable, but also very dark. I think there were 12 rooms, but there didn't seem to be any other guests there when we were there. The manager had just started that day and was friendly but clearly not up to speed. We were unable to get any decent recommendations for places to eat, there was no one to help with bags, no turn down service at night, or any of the other nicities that they will need to provide as a boutique hotel. Breakfast was provided, although without any choice - we just sat down and were told it would be out in 10 minutes (without being told what it actually was). When it came it was a fanciful concoction that didn't impress - again like much of this hotel all apperance and no substance. I wouldn't say to travellers not to stay here because I am sure it will improve in time and get its act together, but check to see how many guests they have staying when you are there to guage whether they are yet up and running properly. I am sure they will consider this review harsh given they had just opened - but quite frankly they shouldn't have opened until they were ready! Well located for the beach, everything else though is a decent walk or car journey.
