We did many cliff walks, we explored the moonscapes and the pretty villages and vineyards. The hotel itself is beautifully situated, on the next bay to the quiet sandy Papagya beach, and with direct access... More

We have walked past this hotel on many occasions while staying in Playa Blanca so this time decided to stay there. We were not disappointed! On arrival a lovely glass of bubbly was offered and staff were so helpful and informative. Our room was amazing. They were only two of us but we had a room with two "suites" !... More

If you want to see the entirety of this hotel on a walkthrough in October 2014 you need to go to Youtube, search on Youtube for wakeywarrior (make sure all one word- NOT 'wakey warrior') and select the icon that says wakeywarrior's channel next to it.
