It's the staff that made our stay so good - nothing was too much trouble - even managing to rustle up something for us to eat when we were late arriving.

Very accommodating manager, a bit short staffed (due to being out of season I assume). Heating and hot water would have been nice, but it's easy to run out of oil.

A decent place to stały, offering basic accomodation and facilities. The showers were a bit dirty, full od sand. Still the location is excellent- just 3 minutes from the beach and the breakfast was amazing! Definitely not something I expected for this price :)
