(I will start with the unpleasant side but there are good traits of the hotel as well)
The first negative aspect is that it's very far from the airport if you don't rent a car/bus service. With a regular bus you have to change twice and the journey takes aprox. 2 hours.
! The bed is terrible to sleep on. Like sleeping on wood. Plus, they don't have a king type of bed but rather two single ones which are one near the other. So if you come as a couple it can be a small issue.
The air conditioning in our room was not working properly and it can get hot during the night.
One of the receptionists, S. with blonde highlights has a somehow unfriendly 'rolling her eyes' type of attitude (although I noticed she is fluent in many languages so who knows, maybe it's not a proper job for her. A bit unfriendly anyway...)
The furniture is a bit 'tired' but I have noticed that in other hotels in Spain as well so many it's just their style...
! We went in September (beginning) and the weather was excellent. 28 - 30(°C).
The food is very good and there is a variety so that you don't get bored of it. + snacks and open bar (if all inclusive). The desserts are wonderful.
The accommodation is spacious if you care about that (studio type with kitchen)
They also have 3 (or so) swimming pools which are quite nice.
The beach is near (10min of walking) and it is beautiful with nice darker sand. The view is spectacular everywhere.
I would say the resort is more family and couple appropriate rather than for singles and group friends. There is not exactly a night life out there.
Overall is an OK hotel that doesn't cost much and it's near a beautiful beach.
