I have traveled a lot in Europe, but never been at a place as nice, cosy and good as El Tio Mateo.

The location is great, easy to find, 100 m from the beach and within walking distance (along a... More

Family type of hotel. Rooms were fine and bathroom quite old but functional. Small veranda was pleasant but need to stand up to have a view to industrial zone, not that charming.... Air conditioning was functioning and ok. Breakfast is extra but not expensive (2.5€). Hotel is located in an industrial zone, close to one beach but quite far from... More
