This was our second time in the Londres (the first was in September). They have started work on the outside (noted on their website) which means that rooms overlooking the town have obscured views until around March 2013. This time we therefore chose a sea-view room, overlooking La Concha beach, and were not disappointed. The view is truly magnificent over the bay to the islands and well worth the extra cost. These rooms are airy and bright and with large, comfortable beds. The other good reason for being here is the position - five minutes walk from the old town with its range of tapas bars although there are very good ones just a few steps from the hotel (La Espiga for example). Another top recommendation is La Perla restaurant, only two minutes walk along the promenade from the hotel - check out the fixed lunch. Good shopping is to be had nearby as well. Parking is convenient in a well-lit underground public car park, a minute's walk from the hotel entrance. Staff are helpful and pleasant, organising restaurant bookings and advising on the nearest banks, shopping etc. We will be definitely be returning in late January on our annual Winter migration to Portugal.
