The staff was really friendly and very helpful. The location was really nice, quite close to the center and to the beach. The beds were good and the rooms were clean.

Hello Lena Thanks for the feedback on your stay with us. In order for us to improve our offering to guests please elaborate on how we can improve on the value for money aspect of our business as well as our facilities as you rated these two with a 3 out of 5 which is very low for our industry. Any positive input is welcome. Thanks Dave Swart
