This is like Blackpool - German style! Hated it and would never visit here - beach not very nice and just generally tacky - with the Spanish equivalent of 'kiss me quick' hat shops and tacky T shirts shops. Never again. The area is more German oriented with restaurants also catering for that market - good schnitzel on offer!

Well the positive of this beach is that is nice not amazing... Has a long boulevard to walk and is cheap... But the negatives is that is full of young drunk Germans that wanna party... I don't mind Germans btw ;) but if I'm in Spain I wanna eat tapas and have a Spanish feel and not seeing only places... More

Me and my friend went beginning of April 2015. Very good breakfast (good variety and tasty), clean room (we had our beds made and new towels every day), good stuff (very helpful with information), very close to the beach not even 2 minutes around the corner. The only down thing was that the TV was in German because it was... More

This is an appalling hotel. We were met with barely a smile and passing eye contact. The room was so drab, the bed sank right down and was lumpy. The most awful view, which can only be described as overlooking a concrete courtyard overlooking the back of private flats. The chest of drawers was inside the wardrobe but the sliding... More

Stayed here for the last week of the season and had a brilliant time. Staff were all friendly and happy to help with any enquiries. Lovely and close to the beach with everything you need a stone's throw away. Pool might be small but simply do more lengths. I'd happily come back here.

All staff were extremely friendly. Lady on reception was English & very friendly. Three different staff during our staff & all very helpful. Hotel was clean & well kept in general. Rooms service was excellent. Staff very trustworthy! The lift broke one evening & was repaired next morning. Small Pool. Great location 2minutes from beach. Had a fantastic stay here!... More

Everything. Staff rude and inappropriate. I booked 2 rooms (1 double-1 quadruple) The first night we were placed in an apartment because they did not have 2 rooms available, next day we were all placed in a small room with 6 beds and a bed at all attached castle, on the third day we were finally given (after insisting) the...

Hi Davide, It makes us sad that we could not convince you of our quality of your holiday. Our reception and our Manager are always open to suggestions and if something is not to your satisfaction, you try to take care of it immediately. I also take this opportunity to inform you that since this year, there has been a... More

This hotel is scandalous! The food was terrible, the only thing edible were fries. Rooms aren't those which we see in the photos and the staff is rude and impolite. Me with my friends we had booked a double room and one quadruple but the first day we were sent to another hotel because the rooms were not ready. The... More

We went for a 1 week holiday with my fiancé, and another couple from Hungary. The hotel was clean and nice, but the view of the room was not that nice. There's an unused "terrace", which would not be a problem, but the young, drunk people throw cans, empty bottles on it, and it is disgusting. I need to highlight... More
