Had a great week, well looked after once again. Rooms (we had 1 bedroom apartment)are spacious,clean with comfortable bed and large balcony. decor a little dated but location and value for money make up it. You must give the restaurant a try , excellent food very well prepared and presented . Thanks to all the staff at hotel, we will be back .

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We have stayed at this hotel more than a dozen times since the 1990s, and always been pleased. This time was no exception. Its location is excellent, right in front of the Casino, 5 minutes walk from the beach and the marina, with views of the sea.
Our one bedroom apartment had a large sitting room with dining area and kitchenette, as well as the bedroom and bathroom. The sitting area has two single sofa beds (just remove the cushions to sleep), with simple wooden furniture and white covers. The kitchenette is small, but has most of the basics ( two ring electric cooker, kettle, toaster, microwave, iron, plus utensils/ plates for four people). It's an apart hotel, so you need to bring your own washing up liquid, sponge, and pegs for the small clothes line on the spacious balcony (or they can be bought at the small supermarket close by). They do provide soap, towels and toilet rolls. There isn't a hair dryer, but they will supply one if asked. The reception staff are friendly and efficient, 24 hours a day.
There are two pools, one for babies and a larger one (about 1.35m deep), which have both been renovated recently, and plenty of sun loungers and sunshades. There is a restaurant/ bar by the pool that serves excellent food at reasonable prices.
This is a great, simple place to stay by the sea, and we will definitely go back.

Great location,very friendly and helpful staff,rooms very clean and comfortable if a little dated. Pool area and snack bar very good.literally minutes from marina and fantastic beach. We had a great week of sun fun and golf ,going back very soon .
Try the Gaviota ( sea gull) beach bar at the far end of Quartiera beach for a meal or just a sundowner or two.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

We booked this hotel for a one night stay after wanting to get away for a few days from where we are staying.

This is the first time we have stayed in this hotel, having usually stayed in another hotel for my previous stays. We chose this hotel based on its location and also price for bed and breakfast which was 85EUR per room, which I found reasonable. The location is around 500m from the beach and the same from the marina.

The hotel has a free car park outside which I had no trouble parking in, but it was slightly lucky I found a spot as cars had started to build up in the middle of the car park lanes. The hotel offers parking in its basement for 15EUR a day should you need it.

The hotel is unassuming looking inside and out. The main reception is clean, airy and has everything you need. The lifts were pretty poor at the time of my stay, two were out of action one evening, out of 4 lifts. No big issue as I used the stairs, but we had 'nan' with us so she had to use another set of lifts further away from her room.

Pool area; clean, south facing so gets a lot of sun, up til around 5-6PM, lots of sunbeds, good bar with a healthy selection of drinks and cocktails. Bar prices are in line of a 'usual' hotel bar, 40EUR for 7 cocktails and a beer, although it does offer happy hour between 6-7PM.

Our room was very clean, the decor was a little dated but I'd take that over a dirty modern room.We had air conditioning, this took some tinkering but it was fine once it got going. The self catering appliances were pretty basic in my opinion, but I rarely stay SC so I wouldn't really feel qualified to say! We had to pay for our safe, 2.25EUR per day with a 10EUR deposit. The room includes PLENTY of storage, which I tried to feel with 2 days worth of clothes, to no avail (even with a young lady in tow). The bathroom was dated, but everything worked. The shower was hot and powerful, although I feel new shower heads would go a long way in improving the showering. The beds were ok, not the best, they came with all necessary covers.

To reiterate the self catering; our room contained two large wardrobes, two other cupboards, large sideboard, chester drawers, two sofa beds, two single beds, dining table and chairs, kitchen sink and hob combo, fridge, toaster, microwave, all crockery and cutlery.

The view from our room was very good considering where the hotel is located, we could see right through to the beach, with little in the way. I would recommend opting for a pool view room on a higher floor.

We had a good stay for the price, nothing really good, nothing really bad. A good option for a golf holiday or a few nights with family/couples.

Room Tip: Pool view on higher floors.
