This cheerful hotel is painted sunset orange with marine-blue trim; dramatic nightlights illuminate the beach area, which is furnished with chaises.The waterfront terrace is ideal at sunset with a tropical daiquiri or planters punch in hand. Imaginative artwork decorates the guest rooms, which evoke faraway places like India and Africa. Soundproof double windows block out even the annoying drone of the motor scooters. The French owners speak some English and have left
everything much as it was under the previous owners (for instance, this is still one of the rare hotels here that does not bump up prices for Christmas and New Year's). However, breakfast is not included now, but 10 euro will buy you eggs, cheese, fresh breads, homemade jams, coffee, tea or hot chocolate.
