My husband, some friends and I stayed for 5 days on a quick trip to Rota. We enjoyed the bar, restaurant and location very much. The resort is close enough to walk into town or for €1.15 you can take the bus right outside of the resort. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful and helped us plan trips to... More

Loved the hotel for our first European vacation, staff was great even with my lack of Spanish they spoke enough English to get anything. Everything was clean and well kept even though it was the off season. The only real draw back was the location even though the you are right on the beach you need a taxi to get... More

Dear Client, Thank you very much for your nice comments. We are glad that you had a nice stay. We are a little bit out of the centre of Rota, but that makes it special, we have a very quiet beach, nice walks and quite ambiance. And you can take a bus, that just stops at the entrance of the...

Resort steps away from the beach with view of amazing sunsets. Delicious buffet style breakfast catered to Europeans and North Americans incl with my room to start the day. Open at 07:30.... More

I loved staying at this hotel on business and I upgraded to a suite with ocean view. WiFi worked well, my free breakfast was a huge spread, pool, multiple lounge areas around pool, lounge areas on the large patio area on the sea side. I never made it to the gym and ran on the beach. Room was comfortable with... More

This hotel was absolutely perfect for my solo get-away to Southern Spain. The price was spot on; definitely recommend prepaying for the breakfast when you arrive. Majority of the guests were older which kept it calm and quiet. The beach and pool are great. I have no complaints and would definitely return! Rooms off the pool were great! I also... More

This is the perfect place to crash out. Junior suites overlooking the ocean are wonderful. We first discovered the hotel many years ago and have often returned. Staff wonderful. We especially enjoy the freshly grilled fish-of-the-day but an excellent range of choice at both breakfast and dinner. N.B. the restaurant offers a Spanish style buffet so lots of getting up...

Returning here this year I was slightly worried that it wouldn't live up to my memories from staying two years ago! It was better.
