My wife and i were there last week Aug/first week Sept (meant to write this review sooner!).
First the good news: very comfortable beds, clean, well kept rooms, effective air-conditioning, central location.
Bad news: poorly kept poolside area (scraggy lawn, worn-out, uncomfortable sun-beds), not-so-friendly staff, smelly, rubbish-strewn approach to hotel entrance.
Mostly Spanish families there, who kept to themselves, so we felt like outsiders, no friendly vibes.
One of the best things about our stay, though, was having a pool-view room, so we had sun all day, so we spent more time on the balcony than at the pool-side. Even then, we felt that the reception staff made a mistake, and that we would have been condemned to the shaded side of the building if we had been checked in by one of the more experienced receptionists. I have a particular reason for believing this which I won't go into here.
Would we go back? No, wouldn't relish dealing with the receptionists and feeling like outcasts!
