Reasons for trip


I'm a bit of an expert in cheap self catering accommodation because I have a very restrictive diet which just cannot be met by most hotels. So I was thrilled to find these bungalows which were extremely cheap (self booked via alpharooms.com) but which were in a brilliant location.

The bungalows are just one street back from the beach but the area is very quiet. Similarly there are dozens of bars and restaurants within less than 500 metres but we did not hear any noise from these at all during our stay.

The bunglows offer a double hob and microwave for their self catering guests. This is pretty standard in cheap accomodation.

The cleaners came in on all but 2 days of our stay and all of the staff were all friendly and helpful.

The only downsides were thin walls (and loud neighbours) and creaky beds.

There is one step into the bungalows. This may make it unsuitable for wheelchair users but is otherwise good for those with restricted mobility.

The resort as a whole has plenty of areas where travellers with reduced mobility would be able to get around easily, however there are some parts of the paved walkway along the beach that have very steep slopes so again wheelchair users may struggle.

For the price we paid (less than £150 for the bungalow for a week) I really can't recommend this accomodation enough.
