We chose this hotel because it was smaller than the massive one nearby.We had a double room which was immaculately clean with lovely views of the sea from the balcony where we sat watching the sun rise and sunset. We had bed and breakfast which was buffet style with plenty of choice and was excellent,, we did have dinner twice,... More

I had a single room (No. 14) from 12-27 Jan. The hotel is immaculately clean, and I had a spacious bathroom, comfy beds (good linen and pillows), and a big sunny terrace overlooking the sea. There was a large sofa. The hotel has an incomparably good location, jutting directly over the Marine Parade, with a large sunning area equipped with... More

This hotel feels like it was here long before all the others, and is quietly still outclassing them. It’s relatively small size, location right on the beach in the heart of town, and friendly, helpful staff all make for a great experience. We only stayed a couple of nights, but would happily have spent longer here. Wonderful ocean views, spacious... More

Chose this hotel because we have a strong dislike of the massive 'all inclusive' experience. With only 57 rooms this hotel has a much more intimate and friendly feel. Had not really wanted to be half board, but this worked out to be better than expected. Dinner was served in two sittings so the buffet had been refreshed for our... More

Thehotel is adjacent to the southern part of the Jandia beach, and the beach can be reached in a couple of minutes from the hotel. All the rooms overlook the sea, and it is wonderful to sit on the balcony and watch the sun go down or listen to the waves breaking on the seashore. The hotel has a relaxed... More

The hotel boasts an amazing view of the Atlantic Ocean. The room was very clean and was within walking distance of restaurants and shops on the beach. The bathroom was really nice. The wifi is just okay -- depends on where you are in your room. Most of the staff is reasonably friendly.
