We`ve stayed in the hotel few days. Morning view during breakfast is just breathtaking! I dream about this view almost every day! Breakfast itself is exactly as a breakfast in 4* hotel should look like. Big selection of cold cuts, warm dishes, pastry, fruits etc. I just wish they had fresh squeezed juices and the coffee was not up to... More

Friendly welcome, nice clean rooms, great good breakfast, lunch and dinner are of excellent quality but sometimes it may slightly warmer.The restaurant staff is top.Even at the early hour we checked out there was a picnicbag ready. This is one of the best hotels on the Spanish coast.Wie definitely come back.
