My wife and I were very happy with the cleanliness and size of our room. Our room was cleaned and towels and bedding changed every day. We ate out most days but the two days that we ate in the Hotel were fine. Well done to the staff for making our stay so comfortable and enjoyable.

We just wanted somewhere to sleep and have a clean as we like walking and exploring so we did not choose an expensive hotel. Although this hotel is dated it is very clean. The laundry is done to a high standard as is the daily room cleaning. The facilities are basic which for the price is what we expected. Santa... More

Totally agree with the last reviewer. My husband and I returned from this hotel in the early hours of Sunday Morning. I had been counting down the days till we could go home. Although we thought our room was a fairly good size and the view (could see the sea from the balcony) was better than what loads of others... More

Only in someone's imagination is this a four star hotel! No air con, threadbare carpets, cracked mirror in the bathroom, dangerous hairdryer fitting, rusty shower curtain rail, broken lamp shade, very very low water pressure in the shower, lack of hot water on several occasions (not rectified even after notifying reception). The breakfast can best be described as dire, the... More

We had a really enjoyable holiday and having paid not that much for the holiday,we were looked after and made very welcome by ALL the lovely staff... Carina, Pedro, Renarta to mention a few. The hotel itself in my opinion, is probably more of a... More

You get what you pay for. This holiday was cheap as chips so we didn't expect 5* luxury and what we got was very decent. It was not 4* (as advertised) but still, it was clean and the staff made it excellent. I truly believe people just like to moan. The breakfast was nothing to shout about but then again,... More
