Located an easy walk between the older and newer parts of town, this is a large, excellently-run hotel with extensive grounds, dominated by a huge pool and and terrace. Reception staff were welcoming, and I was delighted with the room, which glittered with cleanliness and even smelt good. The bathroom would put many four star properties to shame.
The only very small fault I could find was that the quality of the fruit juices for breakfast was a little below standard.
A family-run hotel, which clearly has been welcoming generations of return Spanish and foreign guests, the Nieves Mar shows the chain businesses what a three star hotel can achieve. Congratulations.
