Stayed at the hotel Cervantes as a couple at the end of October.
Hotel is nice enough, and if you can get it at a decent price for bed and breakfast then it is ideal. The rooms were nice enough, the reception area was impressive and staff were all pretty helpful when we needed them.
The hotel is ideally located, the train station is just out the back of the hotel (underground.... no noise), and the sea views are great.
We went all inclusive, and felt it was a bit of a let down on that front. The food was nice, but there wasn't a huge choice, and (for some unknown reason) on a saturday morning there seems to be a lengthy queue for breakfast. Outside of meal times there isn't really anything to eat, which means if you fancy a snack you need to pay. They did have croissants, bread and cheese etc sitting out in the bar, but none of it was covered and didn't look particularly appetising.
The drinks at the bar stop at 11pm, which is quite early, and the all inclusive selection is quite limited (includes peach schnapps..... but an alcohol free version?) There also only appears to be entertainment on a fri and sat night during off season, and even that wasn't great.
The pool area is quite small, and while it was fine for us, I don't know what it would be like in high season.
In summary as a base for a nice break in the area, it is great if you get a good deal, but I would go bed and breakfast as there are so many places that look lovely to eat and drink nearby.
