The “CLIP” Bay
Nice hotel. Clean and comfortable. But rip off. Booked same day using and paid in advance. When leaving, they required another 80 euros because there were two of us. Showed them the same booking for 2 without the extra charges on the website as we were leaving. Made no difference. Whatever, be forewarned.
