During our stay we were treated terrible by all members of the hotel staff from the maids to bartenders to front desk. Tip for anyone who isn't Spanish.. DO NOT STAY HERE. We paid for half board and food was average at best. Rooms are dated but bathrooms are ok. Pool area is nice but most areas get shaded by... More

Visited this hotel 16-23rd July with my 14 year old son. Quick check in and straight to our room one floor up from dining room. The room was fine, no problems. It did have a bigger balcony than the rooms on the floors above us but it always seemed to be occupied by the local pigeons and the mess they... More

What can I say about this hotel? I have just returned today (21 July 15) after 12 days here. Did I enjoy it? Yes. Would I go back? Yes. A very cosmopolitan feel to the place as guests are from UK, France, Russia, Ukraine, Belgium, Holland and Spain to name a few. During my 12 days I found most of... More

(Stayed from 23rd June-7th July) Came back from our 2nd, two week holiday here, it is most defiantly worth more then a 3 star hotel. Food is excellent and plenty of choice, even the picnics are great. Rooms are cleaned every day by pleasant trust worthy cleaners. Bar staff are wonderful especially Ray and Jose to name some.

The rooms themselves are perfectly adequate with the beds being surprisingly comfortable, although not sure why the maids insisted upon pushing them back together when we'd moved them apart every day. The shower was very powerful and there was always hot water, no matter what time of day. We had a room with a pool/sea view so worth dropping the... More

Just came back from this hotel, it was a good cheap family holiday with great entertainment, and good food. Hotel was near to the beach and the town centre, train station is a hike, but not too bad. The only downside is the drink situation, you can only order 2 drinks at any time, fine, however there was 3 in... More
