This is a more traditional type of hotel rather than usual tourist hotels, situated on a quiet street but only 100 yards from the main shopping street, bars etc.The main drawback for me was that although there is a small sunbathing area because of high buildings all around the sun hardly ever shines on it!! You always use the pool and sunbathing areas of any of the bigger hotels if tanning is essential and its only 200yards from the excellent beach.
Large lounges and well stocked bar. Dining room was a bit cramped but the food was excellent for a 3*. Service was excellent with helpful and cheerful staff.
I booked a room for 3 days in a last minute decision to extend my holiday and I booked a single room (which turned out to be a 3 bedder). Decor was old fashioned and the beds comfortable enough. The bathroom had an excellent powerful shower in the bath and there was also a bidet. My only complaint was there was no balcony or opening window ( room303) but the air conditioning was fast and effective with a remote control. Also TV. There was also a good fan.For a few euros more I could have changed to a room with a balcony, but I was only staying a few days and only ate and slept there and it only cost me £44 for 3 night half board.Although there was loud music some nights when in my room I could not hear it at all and slept better there than I ever have before when in Spain, the room was silent. Hardly any traffic as its on a side street.
There are weighing scales to check your baggage is not overweight for the trip home. As I was hand luggage only this was great to know my case was not overweight before I left for my flight home. The receptionists were very helpful and can organise lots of day trips and outings for you. You can have a free bicycle for two hours and they have free to use umbrellas and beach parasols. internet access but expensive and uncomfortable but there is an internet place very near costing 1E an hour. 5 minute walk to railway station.
The only downside for me was that 95% of the clientel were German and as I was travelling alone this meant there was no-one to chat to.
Overall the hotel was excellent value for money and I would stay there again.
The whole place was spotless.
