If you read other reviews of this hotel most are very positive, we could only find 1 thing wrong here... Our room was on the ground floor of block c... Which meant we had to look at an unsightly metal fence outside our room!! We asked to change our room but were told it would cost 9.50 euros per person... More

Dear framealan, Thank you for your comments. We have four different types of rooms: standard, sea view, family and junior suite. The allocation of your room depends on your booking; it is not that the Hotel puts different Tour Operator guests in specific blocks. We are pleased to know that you enjoyed your holidays and look forward to welcoming you... More

I'll try to be factual so that my personal taste doesn't affect this rating. The hotel is lovely but a little worn in places. Lots of interesting nooks and crannies and food and drink readily available, it took us days to find our way around it's like a rabbit warren. Our room was nice, the beds not too bad if... More

Rooms as requested in block A with lovely sea views. A couple of changes from our last visit. A lovely seating area facing... More

Sister and I just returned from a week at this hotel. Overall: Great location for stunning cliff top and sea views however a little out of the way if infirm/immobile. We are fortunate to be young and fit so enjoyed several walks onto the Marina (approx 15-20minutes) and further round to Playa Blanca (40mins to the harbour at the far... More

We have just returned from a week holiday & have nothing but praise for the hotel & especially staff. We upgraded & had a lovely room in C block on the top level & enjoyed fabulous sea views. The weather was mixed so we were glad of the Elite lounge to relax & enjoy a drink or coffee. We tried... More

Just returned from a weeks break. A good hotel that exceeded expectations. The establishment is exceptionally clean and staff were friendly. Having booked all inclusive the food can become boring but this was not the case! Excellent variety and changed constantly, three restaurants to choose from (another 2 available subject to an extra charge). I can highly recommend the Italian.... More
