We stood here mid October, at the end of the season. The hotel was not desert like other places, nice atmosphere at dinner. Good value for the price with the half board solution. Dinner was both buffet (starters, saldas and desserts) and served (main courses). The very big pool and private beach are very nice. All the rest you need... More

We booked this hotel via Thomas Cook and are more than satisfied! Absolutely friendly staff (with very good German skills, English, etc.), an amazing view (from all rooms), tasty food and a car rental service directly from the hotel. The price/performance ratio was more than O.K.! We visited the hotel at the beginning of October and the main season ended... More

What a place, what a energy, what a lovely people!! Bit in the moment of renewal, but high end location, feeling, rest!! Isolated of all unpleasant and brutally chill full!! I've felt in love with this place!! If this is not going to heal you, I don't know what will.. I love it!! Don't miss this magic!!

The views and the beach at Istron are stunning, however, on arrival we were not even shown to our room just handed the key. The room, although spacious, was in desperate need of updating and some care, the furniture was tatty and the sheets were no longer 'white'. The bathroom had cockroaches frequently appearing. There were not many young families... More

This is a THREE STAR HOTEL - nice but certainly not worthy of the five star rating on booking.com! Location was poor - IT IS NOT IN THE FISHING VILLAGE - as it describes on booking.com! Hot water was a problem clearly. It took housekeeping four days to change our antique mattress.

Spent a week here on a late book holiday but was really amazed by the service level. We booked half board and had plenty to eat. Many other guests were full board and how they managed to eat so much I do not know.

Stayed here for a week with my Mum in April, the weather was glorious and the grounds on which the hotel is set are beautiful, with stunning views. The hotel is set down under the main road, so isn't overlooked and feels very privat. The pool was good size and the beach was lovely and clean with a protective arm... More
