My partner and I stayed at this hotel 30th June - 6th July 2013 in room 220. We booked a double room but were given a triple room with 3 single beds, but believe this may have had something to do with the travel agency booking, rather than the hotel. Nevertheless, the hotel room and surrounding areas were clean and the maid came in every day to clean and change towels. The cleanliness and room service could not be faulted.
The hotel room doors shut with a large bang and the noise in the corridors seem to echo loudly, which wasn't very helpful at 2-3am, hearing people arriving and departing. One night a group of people went past our room and attempted to open our door and to my surprise the room door flung open. The beds in this room I found to be a little squeaky too.
The food was adequate and healthy. Cereals, toast and a continental style of bread rolls, cheese, ham and salami's, various juices, tea/coffee, etc. Dinner had salad every night, consisting of lettuce, tomato, grated beetroot and carrot, black olives, with varying amounts of pasta salads and other Mayonnaise type offerings, or tinned tuna, etc., and there was also a main choice of either fish or meat, such as pork, chicken legs, lamb, Spanish omelette, etc. For dessert, there was a selection of tinned and fresh fruit and one option of either a small token of varying sponge cakes, or a tiny pastry and small individual pots of ice cream. The food overall was adequate, plentiful and healthy.
The staff working at this hotel were all very friendly, helpful and welcoming, namely in the restaurant, reception and chamber maid.
The hotel is in a fantastic location, right in the centre of Torremonlinoes, just next to the shops and a few minutes away from the beach. Be warned if you go down to the beach, from any angle of Torremonlinoes, there are a large number of steps to go down/climb up.
My partner and I agree that we would return to this hotel again and think overall that it was good value for money. The location, friendly staff, adequate food and friendliness were all persuasive in this decision.
