An amazing location - directly on the ocean, hearing waves as you go to sleep. There are a couple of restaurants next door and it is a beautiful, 10 min walk into town along the beach or up the cliff paths. The surfing scene is fun to watch with group lessons everywhere.The room was big, clean and everyone was friendly and helpful. The car park is in the cliff behind the lodge, so you need to call reception so that someone goes with you in the car elevator. While an extra step, we never had a problem and enjoyed chatting and learning about the area on the quick ride. You need to have a small car for this -confirm your car type with them if you want to use the parking. This is a lodge, not a full service hotel, so there is not someone always sitting at the front desk, and while the rooms have little bar fridges, there are no coffee machines. We knew it in advance and were there for the amazing views of the beach, surfers, the cliffs... We were there mid-week which was great. Our last night was Friday and it was markedly louder - not in the hotel, but at the restaurant and bar on either side, all of which have outdoor seating and folks hang out on the wall and scooters are coming and going until early morning. It was fun to watch for a while. Given that there is no AC, we had our balcony door open and so it was loud. Try to stay on 2nd floor. If you are a light sleeper, better to go early or late in the season and mid-week. Overall - a great place to stay and we would go back!
