4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Driving into the car park it looked as though we were entering an East German block of flats. However the inside of the hotel was absolutely fine and up to the normal Barceló standard. The stand-out feature is the huge outdoor pool and garden with a pool-side bar and restaurant. The location is fine, with a 5 minute stroll to... More

The staff were really kind & helpful. They were accommodating by helping us move rooms 3 times before we found one that was acceptable. The rooms at the front overlooking the carpark aren't great. The rooms at the back are a bit better but the alternative view isn't much better. The rooms all smell quite stale. I think smoking on... More

First a little far from the center. The rooms( and the beds !!)are good, but not if you are in back side , cause the view is a (very close)hill. Price is high, more than it deserves.Breakfast simply good. Swimming pool nice and big.Gym could be bigger.mirror only one in the room ( bathroom).

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel it was modern, clean and well located next to a park and a ten minute walk to the beach. Best part was the bed! Wow! Breakfast was comprehensive for 15 Euros and the Mojitos at the bar were slow but tasted great :) Next time I'd probably stay in the old town but... More

This is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff went out of their way to make us welcome. In particular the pool lifeguard was happy to stand out in the rain so our kids could carry on swimming.
