Really impressive hotel with nice rooms, a big bed and a big shower. Cleaning several times a day if needed and nice cleaning personal. BUT I expected a lot more from the staff of a 4 star hotel. They only spoke broken English but at least they were nice enough.

Can I first start by saying at least the hotel was clean and in a great location HOWEVER I would never stay here again and would advise you to look at other accommodation in the area! The staff were simply rude and unhelpful. When checking in other than asking for the booking name he simply gave us a key and... More

If you go there with lower expectations of a four-star hotel, you'll have a very pleasant stay. The bed is not the most comfortable, compared to higher end Hilton/Marriott chains, the overall decor is outdated, and noise level is a problem at night if you don't tightly close your windows. On the other hand, location is great (just a 2... More

I had a room on the 7th floor and I had a bit of a view of the sea but the trees were in the way. One floor higher and it would have been perfect. But its not the view alone why I would choose this hotel again. Its also because of the central location (beach nearby) and the generous... More

Spent here 5 nights due to a conference. Everything here is by the book + great location. The mini bar in our room did not open, and we had to ask 3 times for assistance. However, we had a wonderful time there.

Really nice Hotel. Short distance from the port. Room very comfortable and clean as was the rest of the Hotel. Food was excellent on each of our eight nights stay. Reception staff and restaurant staff all very friendly.

Friendly English speaking staff and helpful when a reservation issue occurred. Tasty breakfast. Convenient location, not in the city center but not very far. Nice sandy beach and nice walk to Magdalenas Castle. And above all, clean.

The reception staff (male) such as Jose, Miguel and Manuel all very efficient and helpful. Female staff less so. Yes the walls are thin, so earplugs for light sleepers. The dog mentioned before was indeed still barking away. Did not bother me but it might do so for others. We were on the seventh floor, nice view, great location near... More

This hotel is located less than a block from the ocean. The breath taking beach at the end of the street is alone worth the cost. The rooms are a bit worn and the walls are thin, but they do offer a very good breakfast Buffett.
