Good budget option. The location is ok for peace and quiet but pretty far from town. There's no stores, supermarkets or anything worthwhile nearby. It's about 300 metres to the beach, which is beautiful, but generally you're on your own there. They have a useful kitchen but you need to take a bus into town to stock up on supplies. Large sized private room with comfortable bed, ceiling fan, high ceilings. The wi-fi is spotty but manageable.
