When we arrived our room wasn't yet ready, so we left our bags in a small store room and went for some lunch nearby. The reception area wasn't quite as I expected, but it was clean and tidy. The two members of staff we dealt with were very polite and helpful. We came back at the given time and were... More

We stayed in a suite (2 rooms). The view from the balcony was stunning. Sleeping quality was excellent. I enjoyed a lot the firm mattress of our room. It was great to listen to the sound of the waves at night. The breakfast is nothing special, very simple. One would expect more from such hotel. The swimming pool was great.... More

Wow, what a location! 100m pool in front of the hotel; but, right on an amazing beach too. Brilliant for surfing/body boarding. Fantastic room for 4 people - that includes a separate room (our two older children were in there); wish more hotels did this. Lovely view from our room - see photo!! Also a large fridge. Very clean.

We were very surprised when we opened the door to our room and saw the view. After the not so grand entrance to the hotel and the so so lobby, we were very pleased with how big the room was and how big our balcony was. The pool outside was built right into the ocean was the biggest pool I... More

Such a great view from basically all rooms and one of the biggest seawater pools you can find in Europe. The hotel has been built at a time when costs were not an issue, it is still amazing to see the layout. Very friendly staff, rooms are nice but not fancy and all of them come with seaview and a...

We stayed here for 2 night in May, 2014. The hotel is right on the beach with incredible views of the waterfront, surfers and dramatic cliffs. Our room had a balcony with a table and chairs so we could have a glass of wine in the late afternoon and watch the waves. The room was a good size and was... More

This hotel is in an amazing location, the views from the rooms are breathtaking, there is nothing like lying in bed listening to the ocean. The hotel is very clean and the breakfast in the morning is good, we had lunch there once and we weren't so impressed, but there is a restaurant up the hill form the hotel which... More

You come here to experience the Atlantic ocean, the mighty rumblibg sounds of it, the sunsets and the beach - more suited for walking by the water or surfing than swinming, for swinming the hotel has a huge pool. If you are looking for anything else than beeing near - very near - of the sea, choose another hotel. Nearby... More

Behind the bland entrance this cleverly designed painted concrete block of a 3 star hotel has a lot of surprises, delivered by great staff. Clean tiled large bright ensuite rooms with excellent blackout curtains and own balcony directly on the sea front and beach, good breakfast with fresh fruit salad, and a huge pool. I noticed a grand piano and... More
