I could wax lyrical for pages about this place but I won't as it's all been said before- so basically I will some up the hotel, the facilities, the staff, the rooms, the nearness to the beach, nearness to lovely friendly restuarants, the climate, the quietness, the opportunities for quiet and rest in one word AWESOME!

What a great hotel. Love the location, all rooms overlook the sea. Air con rooms are a tad dated, but spotless with everything you could want. The location is perfect with great nearby fish based bars and restaurants. It's quiet with few children. The pool is so relaxing,yes there are a few early towelers, but it's so laid back it's...

We stayed here for 6 nights in mid June and chose the hotel because of its relatively small size, seafront location and Tripadvisor reviews. We were very happy with our choice, especially as we received a free upgrade to one of only 3 suites. Ours was room 55, situated on the lowest level of the hotel along from the pool,... More

This is a gorgeous hotel in a stunning location. The room is lovely and spacious, all have stunning views over the sea, the food is amazing and it's so quiet and peaceful. Yet it's right above an amazing beach and a walk from a lovely fishing village and from the resort of Jandia! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and wondering when... More

This the third time we have stayed here, once as Riu, then shortly after XQ took over and at Easter 2014. Each time the overall quality gets better and better. We had concerns about noise and unhelpful staff, there were absolutely no issues with either. The reception staff were delightful, helpful and went out of their way to ensure everything... More
