Upon arrival we were dropped off on a very busy main road in front of McDonald's, with the driver shouting, "rapido, rapido" as his bus was causing a traffic jam. Asking where's the hotel the driver vaguely pointed down a narrow side road leading behind McDonald's, so we followed it and duly found it. Approaching the front of the Hotel,... More

The Hotel is a very good 2 stars Hotel. We enjoyed our week there during this busy time of the year. Staff was friendly and replied to all our queries. Couple of negatives are tho breakfast hot buffet which is always the same and the elevator definitely needs some refurbishment. Location is great!

First impression - The overwhelming smell of cat wee as you walk to reception! - It's all over the hotel, especially the soft furnishings in the bar area. It caters for mainly Spaniards - which is no problem, as it's in Spain! Check in - Quick, but a bit abrupt - Little or no explanations about the safety deposit box... More
