Some bedroom doors and windows have been fitted and some cladding has been placed on one elevation, but the front of the Hotel is still shuttered. I can't foresee this once little gem of a Hotel re-opening for some considerable... More

Walked by on a visit in April to be met by Pedro and Juan coming out of the shell of the building with bags of cement and other building materials. They remembered us from our previous visits and told us that the Hotel would re-open in 3 months and will still be called El Tiburon, Judging by the "Derelict" state... More

The hotel is only 5 minutes walk from the beach front with a whole range of bars, restaurants & shops. A fantastic place to holiday with a convenient... More
