“Perfect for students and low budget travellers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

We didn't expect much and we received more than we thought. Great and charming lobby, very polite staff (german speaking). The hotel room was ok (clean!). Air condition costs extra. We just opened the balcony door. We had one of the best rooms with view over the pool area (green trees, not loud at all), hills in the background and on your left you could see the sea.
Food wasn't as in a restaurant but ok. They always proposed something typically spanish like creme catalan or sea food salad. We just didn't like that you have to pay for drinks during dinner. Concerning breakfast, I didn't like the orange juice, which hasn't ever seen a real orange, but the coffee was good. ;)
One little thing: during summer season it seems to be usual to switch between hotels of the same quality, so we were in another hotel (cupido) for 3 days, which was one street farer away from the beach but we liked this one as well. Then we switched back.
So, all in all, great stay for little money. We even tried to speak spanish but nearly everybody speaks German over there! :D

You get what you pay for. We booked this hotel since we stayed with a larger group of friends that was attending a wedding. The price was ridiculously low (50€ per couple incl. breakfast), but don´t expect anything for it....except a 30 yr. old bed and outdated furniture.

The hotel itself is very close to the beach and the main avenue, so at least there are many options around to stay away from your hotel room.
What bothered me is that the hotel lists itself as having A/C, TV and a safety box. As soon as we got to our room (which hasn´t been renewed for 30 yrs.) I started desperately searching for the A/C remote. I call reception and I was told I had to pay extra 15€ per week. "OK, we´ll take it, please bring it up". Answer was: "No, you have to come down and get it yourself".

The beds are super uncomfortable: very short and narrow, and the pillows are super-flat. The bathroom is "OK", clean but small.
Breakfast is a joke, offering only sugar-concentrated orange juice, bad coffee and bit of bread with marmelade. The single waiter is an old guy that continually critizices foreign hotel guests.
The other staff (manager and reception) were nice and polite.

Even though it was already paid for, we only had breakfast once there, and found much better places along the promenade. The pool is small and cramped, we never used it since the beach is only 20 meters away and is much nicer.

In summary.... if you are in a very tight budget this hotel might work for you, but don´t expect anything special.

My husband and I walked into the open bar / lobby to check out the hotel and inquire about rates & availability. (Keep in mind that all of the doors to the place were wide open, seemingly inviting...)

As we entered the dated dining room, a man (presumably the owner) started shouting at us in German. I replied to him with shock by saying, "I don't understand."
His response: "English? Get out! Nevermind!"

We were dumbfounded and of course immediately headed for the exit past a few folks chatting with a woman behind the reception desk (whom I smiled at moments earlier for approval before looking around).

I have never been treated so badly and in such a seemingly racist demeanor.

Beware of this place & the nasty staff.
