We chose this hotel as we have previously stayed at the sister hotel Eugenia Victoria and knew this would be of a similar standard. We had requested a room on a high floor with sea view, and this is what we got, so good start (803). We booked through Hotels4U, and flights with Ryanair, pre-booked private taxi transfer with Suntransfers.com,... More

Considering the amount we paid for the hostel and flights, the hostel is of pretty good standard and service. Going half board, the breakfast and dinner options which are a large buffet were of decent quality with drink service to the table. The rooms are cleaned every two days and the hostel is on the whole is kept very clean.... More

Fantastic hotel/facilities. Food above average, waiter service at evening meal times. Plenty shops etc. on doorstep - frequent buses to all areas. Entertainment very good. Stayed in twin room overlooking the road (5th floor) which had sea view.

Visited 5/9/14-12/9/14, for what we paid this accomodation far exceeded our expectations. Friendly reception staff, room cleaned daily & towels changed every 2 days. We were half board, both breakfasts & evening meals were fabulous, exceptional choice, meat & fish cooked fresh everynight. Freddie the entertainer was great with the daily entertainment schedule. Although we didn't use all the facilities... More

We stayed from the 15th of August for a week and it was great! My mum and I were on a girls holiday so enjoyed just relaxing by the pool, getting involved with all of the entertainment that was on offer and we visited a few local (non tourist) beaches which were stunning! I would like to mention the entertainment... More

The hotel is very well located, easy to find and first coming to the island, easy access to the road that takes us everywhere. A few blocks from Playa del Ingles, has a great restaurant, lots of choices in every meal, and a very nice spa. The only thing that could get better is the wifi signal inside the rooms.

I stayed here for a week in August 14, a young 27 year old British couple from a common working class down to earth background with our 2 boys aged 4 and 2. Whilst the hotel is good, I wouldn't stay again. The staff aren't the friendliest in the world and seem to give priority to the Germans. My biggest... More
