Lovely staff, couldn't fault them at all, receptionists were so helpful, ask them for a map once you get there. The pool area was clean. Breakfast was nice, good variety although the evening meal was not great. Rooms were clean and comfortable with the air conditioning.

My friend and I have just come back from this hotel. Without exception, all the staff from the cleaners to the hotel managers were so very welcoming, nothing was too much trouble for them. We asked for a room over the pool which we got and were so pleased to sit on the balcony in the evening and watch all... More

The place proved to be an excellent choice for that. It is an elegant hotel, very quiet and cool. The room, which I got was aesthetically appealing and are very... More

We chose this hotel while we were in Spain after realizing the first one we had chosen was too far out and we wanted to be more centralized for nightlife and restaurants which the Santa Monica Playa is. The standard is pretty basic, the breakfast wasn't that good, the room itself was no frills but comfortable. The reception staff were... More
