If you are 18 and looking to party on the cheap, by all means, come here! If you are a bona-fide adult, stay away. The good: cheap, clean rooms, sufficient towels (though no pool towels), courteous staff, gorgeous pool with decent sunbeds, plentiful food. The bad: THIN walls, noisy clientele, HARD beds, one small hard pillow per person, dreadful food (the coffee is totally undrinkable and I although I am a connosieur, I am also an addict and can choke down almost any horrid coffee-like beverage...not this), and they nickel-and-dime you (4€/day to use room safe, 5€/day for internet, water is not included with meals so you have to buy a bottle - they won't let you bring in your own and there is no tap). The town is tourist hellhole full of Brit and Euro teens on party weekends. But also there is an inexplicable number of taciturn, elderly tourists as well. They do not look impressed or at all happy, but I can't tell if it's because they are just grumpy old people or if they were not expecting this environment (surely some of them knew? A lot of them are Spanish...). It seems the hotel tries to cater to them, though, as they have bingo nights, etc, which is incongruous amongst the partying kids. We came here for a beach sporting event and were housed in this hotel, probably on a group rate, and paid something like 150€ for 4 nights of accommodation including breakfasts and dinners for 2 people. On our own travel, we would likely spend that per day, so I can't really complain about the value for the money, but I would not choose this hotel or this town independently.
