8/10 Very good

Well priced, very clean. Rooms are very small and water pressure low.

4/10 Fair

Although this was relatively cheap the room smelt musty. The bed & sheets were clean but the carpet didn’t look recently hoovered and the towels did not smell freshly laundered. The kitchen area was very handy but again it was not terribly clean. Close to the beach and amenities and the lady was very friendly and kind.
