        The beach is a stones-throw, the rooms very comfortable and clean, certainly visit!

        We were late to arrive after the normal check-in time, though weren't aware there was a definitive check-in closing time. It's recommended you call ahead if this is the case as it will afford you a more pleasant welcoming. Once inside the accommodation is clean and very comfortable, a stay here is certainly recommended.

        Millipedes welcomed us”

        We checked in around 11 pm in the night and found the place quite presentable. To our surprise ,we saw few millipedes around the room. We discarded them but more and more coming around everywhere. In total we would have flushed around 20. Couldnot sleep entire night . We sent a message in the night to the owner but never got a reply from them.

        Reviewed February 21, 2019

        Unfortunately we were asleep at midnight when you messaged us and you said in that message you had got rid of 10 small millipedes (they are about 5mm each!) In the morning you rushed off after breakfast and didn't say it was a huge problem. Your message did not indicate it was a huge problem either. In fact you said that everything seemed fine in the room apart from that. When I saw your review on google, I messaged you immediately and apologised. We checked the room after seeing your message and none were to be found and none seen since. I can only think it was because I left the lights on and curtains open for your very late arrival and they were attracted tot he light. For that I apologise.

        Reviewed March 17, 2017

        Sorry that you were given wrong information about eating out. We try to emphasise that booking is advisable since not all restaurants are open every night and some get booked up ahead of time and change their opening hours at different times of year which makes it hard to keep up with all of them. We're always available and willing to call ahead for you too. Glad you enjoyed yes our location though.
