We don't usually do negative reviews, but we are this time because of the high ratings given on Tripadvisor - which we usually find we can trust.
To be fair, the positives are: great location on the beach; very clean; and, when we checked in, the woman, the owner, was very friendly. Also, the pictures on here are of the rooms, they are accurate.
We looked at three of the rooms before choosing the room we stayed in.
The truth about the cottages is that they are very old and have had no improvements done for many, many years. We would guess about 20 - 30 years.
These cottages/rooms need to be gutted, re-wired and re-plumbed. The rooms and furnishings are very dated. All the furniture we saw needs to be replaced. We had to unplug the fridge (which is right next to the bed) because it was so noisy we couldn't sleep the first night. The breaker blew when a hair dryer was plugged in.
It is shocking that there is a 5 star rating on Tripadvisor. We stayed for three night, further up the coast, for the same amount of money, which blew our socks off it was so nice. And it wasn't rated this high!
