Food is good, not overly brilliant but for the money, well worth having. bar prices are reasonable too. To get to the hotel you will need to... More

I'll make it quick and short. Lousy rooms. Poor food and pool area. Worst location for beach access (full of rocks and it is the narrowest part of the beach which gets full easily). Terrible service from staff members. I arrived to this hotel because a friend recommended it to me. I will not follow my friend's future recommendations (but... More

Dear Client, Thank you for your comments. We are really sorry that you didn't like the hotel. The beach is the Atlantic ocean, so it comes up and down, that makes that some hours there is less beach, but our beach is so big from the Hotel to Rota that you have place enough. We are sorry that you didn't... More

This hotel is a hotel with many personalities. It is a hotel along the beach. It has rooms along the sea, along side the pool, along side an enclosed courtyard, and along side a tennis court. So choose your style according to your wallet. The time of year you travel will make a difference with regards to when the seaside... More

I was there for a week and there was nothing I didn't like. Special thanks to the staff which were incredibly nice and helpful. I do recommend the hotel without restrictions, it's as good for the traveling alone as for lovers or families.

tention to Detail is evident right down to the lovely embossed slippers and extra fluffy, bathrobes. The hotel has a very high standard for clean! The first time I stayed I was in a large suite with separate living and sleeping areas. I love this place and the people!

Superb hotel with very attentive staff, clean rooms, impeccable facilities and lots of activities for visitors. I would definitely stay here again if looking for a true beach side resort in Andalucia. Only tip to travelers is that, due to the location you'll need to use a car or cab to get into town--not a lot of restaurants or bars... More

We spent about a week here the end of March. Hotel rooms are very nice and surround a beautiful large pool area. Hotel is right on the beach though don't recommend swimming as very rough. While the breakfast buffet is okay, don't eat dinner there, not good at all. Service at front desk is very helpful.
