We have just returned from five nights at the Flatotel. This was a last minute trip on a budget, we just needed some autumn sunshine.
The staff were very efficient, friendly, and helpful on both check in and check out. Our room furniture and fittings were a little tired but it was very clean on arrival and cleaned twice during our stay.
The breakfasts at this hotel were on the poor side. An English breakfast was two fired eggs, two pieces of bacon, one frankfurter and some baked beans. Needless to say we only had one breakfast in the hotel.
The pool area was good. Nice clean pool and plenty of loungers. Unfortunately the pool bar was not open during our stay, but the barman in the main hotel bar was very friendly and helpful.
Even with the tired furniture and the poor breakfast, given the price we paid, I think this hotel is very good value for money.
The beach directly at the front of the hotel is sandy, some previous reviews have reported that this is not the case? It is definitely course dark sand. There are stones in the sand but it is definitely not a stone beach. It is actually very nice for snorkelling with some large rocks close to the shore.
There is also the Benalnatura naturist beach, a five minute walk heading west. This is a lovely beach for getting an all over tan, with a bar at the bottom of the steps as you walk down to the beach.
There are plenty of places to eat in both directions along the cost. You can walk to these, or 1.45 euros each gets you most places on the bus.
All in all a very nice trip.
