The hotel, sitting on the beach in a small town, where the buildings are all low, make it seem someone from Monty Python had just dropped it there but that is where the incongruity stopped.
The place is spotlessly clean and well maintained. We found the staff friendly and helpful and nothing seemed to be of any bother. An unannounced bowl of fruit and sparkling wine was sent to the room for a birthday present, which was not expected but very much appreciated. Upon thanking them at reception and asking why we were told, with a smile, "perhaps someone had a birthday?"
We ate twice in the restaurant: first a la carte and secondly buffet. Although the buffet was standard hotel fayre, it was tasty. The a la carte was fantastic and I tasted Octopus on thin slices of sweet potato, like I have never tasted octopus before. So tasty.
All in all, despite it looking so out of place, this place was a vary welcome surprise for me. A thank you to the all the staff.
