Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The room was nice an spacious, layout of the room was perfectly designed, great for a wheelchair person. Just one thing that maybe need to look at is the little outdoor area. Chair an Table had spider webs, so my wife didn't want to sit outside, looked like no one has touched it or cleaned it for a while. We thought it could be a great area if it had colour instead of a grey wall. Have green turf on the ground, artwork on the wall of the beach an maybe wall of plant boxes with veggies or herbs or just plants would give it life an character. Also add outdoor lounge seats. But that's your call, amazing place to stay.
