This was my 2nd stop in my 2 week long honeymoon in Spain.. So I requested the manager to give me good room and he indeed give a nice room in their new wing..
Rooms - were of a very decent size with a small attached balcony overlooking the beach.. The bed wasn't the most comfortable that I have come across. It could have been far better specially if they did away with the small wheels below the bed. The bathroom too was reasonably ok..
Food - I must say that the breakfast both in terms of spread as well as state was by far the best I came across all he hotels I stayed in Spain. It was the most perfect way to kick start your day. I don't remember the name but a great Indian restaurant is just outside the hotel.
Location - what worked best for the hotel was its location. Right on the beach and even the old town (shopping area) is just a walking distance. Most shopping places were at a max 10 mins walking distance from the hotel.
Service - on the whole the service at the hotel was average and to be honest a slight below expectation.. Definitely much scope for improvement there.
