A fair review takes several things into consideration, a little time researching the location, area and of course the price paid for the entire holiday.
All of this said i have to agree with one or two other reviewers who are annoyed about the negativity shown to this hotel.
The location is in a rather pleasant residential area but dont be put off by that, its got the train station right on the doorstep and one or two bars and shops nearby.
The hotel itself is, by and large, fairly clean all round, rooms cleaned regularly, garden and pool area looked after quite well and most of the staff we found to be helpful if spoken to in a respectful manner.
We did, however, find that one or two of the staff were a little rude and another guest commented "its because its the end of the season", this is no excuse to be awkward. we are paying guests no matter what the time of year!
For us, the food was fairly good, plenty to eat and plenty of choice, again, break it down and look at what it has actually cost you for each meal.
The entertainment was typical of Spanish hotels, no better,no worse.
If i were to be negative then for us the hotel lacked an overall spanish feel, the dining room probably being the worst, it felt like being back at school, also why do all inclusive guests have to drink from plastic glasses? i can understand the pool area is a no go but evenings and the bar area, especially when guests who are paying for drinks get theirs served in a glass. (also when its hot a half pint of spanish lager which is half froth is gone in seconds!)
Would we return here?, certainly along this stretch of coastline, the connecting train service is excellent and the area is generally nice with a lovely clean beach and the hotel, yes i think we would if the price (there it is again) was right.
