Very good location if you are looking for a hotel at the beach. Not too crowded area. Restaurants and upscale shopping close by. Nice area to walk along the beach and the ocean boardwalk. Hotel was very nice, but mainly older people. Good food and service. Very friendly. Not recommended for families with small children.

Spent two weeks here from 19 th may to 2nd June 2015. The hotel is probably one of the best I've been using. The bed was probably the best I've slept in besides my own. We had a side sea view on the fifth floor. It was amazing. Not only did we have a view over to melonares but we... More

Excellent hotel but their limited sea view room (as described by Thomson) in fact looked at a large white wall. Upgrading was easy, but at an unexpected cost. Very friendly staff and the whole hotel was clean. The roof terrace was quiet and had fantastic views.

Fantastic Hotel, great location, excellent facilities and what made the holiday was the staff so friendly, polite and professional. Also the breakfast choice is great too! One tiny thing there were a few children, it was advertised as an adult only Hotel and people do pick that type of Hotel for a reason. I hope to go back next year... More

All staff were so friendly & helpful. Evening entertainment was very limited. Pool was well maintained and always clean. Room cleanliness was immaculate. Asked for a sea view room but 24/7 breakers means it is always noisy. AC was also noisy so choice was not to have AC and sweat for the night.
