Room was renovated and is really nice. There is still room for improvement, for example, there is no refrigerator in room. Excellent breakfast and dinner, very welcoming and professional staff. Location is great, a few meters from the beach and approx 15 minutes walk to the city center.

The staff is friendly because they are very young. The location is great. The food looks varied but not everything is delicious... All Are very kind but drinks are waiting for up to 20 minutes.The deck chairs are free, but you have to get up at dawn and book and defend them with your life!!!!Recently, the hotel was renovated, finally, and all the employees think they're working on the Côte d'Azur.But It's all very slow and you can't get upset about it.why? Because We're here on vacation😉
