Internet is not so good and some of the expected services were additionally charged (refrigirator, safe, wifi).. otherwise great place. Reasturant was suprisingly good, especially dinner. Open pool is also nice.

First time at this hotel after staying at others for 10 years and wish we had tried it earlier. Couldn't fault the food or service from any of the staff as although some only spoke little english(we were in Spain) always did their best to help and were always polite and greeted you whenever they saw you. Entertainment every night... More

Stayed here in May 2013 and was really pleased. The pool area is one of the nicest i have been to! Staff were friendly but didn't speak much English. The rooms were clean. Location is not far from the beach.
