Rooms are big, but lack of maintenance is evident. Pool and distance from the sea are bigest advantage. Breakfast is "boring" after first day. Not so many choices and food quality is average. Imposant from outside, but inside average.

We stayed here for 4 nights. Things were ok but many of the reviews were spot on in terms of what to expect. The worst was finding a pubic hair in one of the cakes that was made for the buffet breakfast. When we complained to the reception and duty manager, all they could say was sorry. I think this...

This hotel is rated as a 5 star hotel presently! This is a joke! 20 years ago that might have been the case. This hotel has seen its best days and is definitely not up-to-date anymore. The whole infrastructure of the resort seemed to be a bit old fashion, incl. the furniture in the room. The whole service staff, from... More

This hotel was under brand new ownership when we stayed there for 3 days in late December 2013, so some of the problems we encountered will probably be taken care of by the time you read this. Our main complaint was with the front desk, where the staff seemed incompetent at times, making us wait forever to get us towels... More

Very nice club and spa! Perhaps one of the best in the area! The hotel is not as modern as Movenpick, but has a nice touch of the andalusian architect. The pool are is clean and has a great garden view. Hotel has a clean priviate beach; which is a 5 minute walk from the pool area on a bamboo... More
