I recently visited this hotel for a 2-night work stay. There are a wide variety of room sizes and configurations, but all of them have firm mattresses and tile floors. Overall, the rooms were clean, but some of my co-workers reported insects toward the end of our stay. The grounds and pool are beautifully maintained. The staff is nice, especially... More

We stopped for refreshments, we had some amazing tapas, I especially liked the Russian salad and they were all priced at €2.50. We also had an octopus dish, a prawn dish and a meat with tomato sauce.It was... More

The hotel could not be in a better location. All the staff are very welcoming and helpful. Our room was excellent with a lovely sea view, very clean and spacious. The restaurant was self service with a wide variety of dishes to choose from, plus a good wine list. We look forward to returning later in the year.

There were no tea/coffee making facilities in the room but that seems normal in Spain so not a complaint, just something to be aware of. This is... More
