I was confident about the resort as I went last year, however, I stayed in a different hotel. After reading the reviews for this hotel, I was even more confident about this hotel and I was right to be! We arrived at the hotel well after 1am and there were 2 polite men who worked there to greet us (Im guessing one was the owner as he was drinking at the bar rather than serving!). Check in was no problem, they were very friendly telling us that 'in this hotel you will be treated like family' and we got a free alcoholic shot! We got up to the room which was spectacularly clean with a 32inch flat screen, double bed, dressing table, large wardrobe, en-suite with a shower/bath. The previous reviews were right about the bath plugs, there are none. However, its not the end of the world and the shower was good enough. You also get a large balcony in pretty much all the rooms. The view was really lovely and it was really nice to sit out there late at night. We had a garden view and could see mountains in the background along with a slight view of the sea! We were on the top floor so could see pretty much everything. You are always guaranteed a sun lounger especially the time of year we went. You may have to get down there by 11, but its not a big issue to get one even though there are only around 12! there's also lots of grass to lie on too. I was very touched by how well this hotel is looked after. Every one of the staff was friendly including the maids. The rooms cleaned everyday and the sheets changed regularly. The gardens are beautiful with a small fountain by the pool. At night, the gardens are lit up and its lovely to sit there either before you head out or after a night out as there are tables and chairs. So calm and peaceful! I'm being honest, you can hear the road but it didnt bother me in the slightest and i dont fall asleep that easy. Its very quiet after about 11pm and who goes to bed before then on holiday? We spent most days by the beach and towards the end of the holiday, even though there were loungers, some 'loud' families started to arrive and we prefered the beach from then on. This of course, isnt the hotels fault. You can hire a lounger at the beach for 5euros each and you get service from the restaurant if you go to the one at the bottom of the hill directly from the hotel (opposite a car park). The hotel is a short walk (approx 4mins) from the beach down a hill. If youre not good with hills, you may struggle. The resort is by far amazing! Go to the harbour which is about a 10 min walk (left from the beach at the bottom of the hill) (theres also another small resort if you turn right and walk round the rock - easy to find). if you turn right out the hotel, around 2 mins away theres a mercadona (large proper supermarket - very cheap). We had a room only so cant comment on food. We hired a fridge for 5euros a day, well worth it! Air con is amazing (one of the reasons I choose this hotel). Overall this holiday was lovely and I will definitely be returning to this hotel and I 100% recommend you to go!!
