Every guest has his own key and bringing someone to your room is no problem, the free condoms in the room are proof of that.They are also in contact with a professional masseur, RICHARD, who can come to the hotel for just 40 Euros and give you a complete massage for one hour. They will call him for an appointment if you ask at the reception desk.

    If you say you are sent by PJP upon reservation you get a book full of information in your room (gay town maps, cards, an excellent homemade gay beaches map, local gay newspapers, (ask for it if its not there) and if all this is not enough David and Robert & Firudin will be more than happy to help you further since they know the whole gay scene. Prices : double room : 54 - 90 Euros per room, breakfast : 6 Euros.
