The place proudly displays 4****, which, by looking at the room design, might have been the case ages ago. Nowadays, you get heavily scratched floors, old bathroom (with one tiny soap for three persons and two towel sets), antique TV-set, moving beds. The 3rd bed was an armchair bed, actually. Size room ok, clean, friendly staff, and excellent breakfast buffet.

We've just got back from a really lovely holiday in Playa de San Juan staying at the holiday Inn. Weather was absolutely perfect and we loved the location, a ten minute walk to a fabulous beach resplendent with palm trees, walks to die for and cafes and restaurants along the beach. Additionally, bus stop outside the hotel with regular, and... More

I stayed here for 3 nights with my husband and little child in October. For the price we paid I could not fault the hotel at all. A short walk to the beach. Lovely clean beach and lots of restaurants along the promenade. The hotel pool was ice cold, but then it was October! There was also a little play... More

This hotel is in desperate need of a renovation. The rugs are filthy, stained, and smell of humidity and mould. Why they put carpeting in a beach hotel (in the heart of the ceramic tile industry) is beyond me. The hotel is independently owned and the owner is cheaping out on renovations. The reception summer staff is mostly young people... More

We chose this hotel, because we wanted a place relatively close to the beach. It cost us 3.85 euros per person to get a bus from the airport to Puerta Mar 1 (Plaza Puerta del Mar) and from the same bus stop we got into the bus 21 (it was somewhere around 3 euros per person I think) which went...
