“Such kind hearts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2007

I stayed at this hotel for two weeks, and in two separate suites.

The first was a ground floor room, directly in front of the grass area, which lots of light and a decent kitchen for a hotel. The windows in the bedrooms were small, but little time was spent in there. The bathroom in that particular room was marble and newer (not fitting with the rest of the hotel). The kitchen appliances were new and clean, yet didn't seem to work as well as they should.

The second room I stayed in was on the second floor, in a separate wing. I felt removed from the hotel, and I didn't enjoy that aspect. There were some perks, like the fabulous balcony drenched in sunlight. It also had a view of the water. This room however was older than the previous room I stayed in. It did have the ant problem, but that was limited to the bathroom. I didn't think it was a huge problem, as long as food wasn't brought into the room. One time I did light them on fire because I was a little fed up.

On to the rest of the hotel. There were lots of lounge areas in the hotel, most of the seemed like wastes of space, but if you wanted to escape your room, it was possible.

The pool area was quite nice. Many seats, lots of shade if you wanted, and little wind. It made a difference compared to the sea. The nice thing about the pool, were the jets that kept the water flowing.

The best part though, was the buffet breakfast. These Spaniards know how to eat. Limitless treats, pastries, eggs, and fried pork. The orange juice might be a little acidic, but it was quite elaborate for this family hotel.

  • Liked — The Eggman, he comes around everyday asking what type of eggs you want.
  • Disliked — The architecture of the complex.

This has to be the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Our room was infested with ants. They were all over the bathroom, the floor and then ended up in our cases. In fact, I picked three ants off my boyfriends clothes while we were in a restaurant. When I spoke to the hotel - they said they were aware of the problem. They had no other room they could offer us and initially refused to give us a discount on the £110 a night room saying that if we didn't like it then we should book somewhere else!!!!!!!! This is certainly no three star hotel. Do not go!
