Stayed for 4 nights in this hotel. As soon as I entered the room - it was like coming back into mid 90's. Old furniture and a museum-like TV. Dark bathroom. Prefered not to turn on AC (air condition). On the positive side - it was warm in the room (for January and with AC turned OFF) and mattress was really good. Later I have visited few other rooms on the same (2nd) floor and impression didn't change.
What I liked more apart from the bed - sea view from the room and proximity to the beach. Balcony. Separate bedroom. Sofa. Entrance hall and patio. Gym. Friendly staff. Possibility to find and book excursiones directly from the hotel. Some small details like: extra pillow in the room.
Rooms were clean. But, as already mentioned, wooden and metal surfaces in the room are too old, leaving an overall negative impression. Housekeeping has nothing to do with it.
It was a bit noisy in the room when some children were playing near swimming pool... Also, I could hear some music coming from the street, but it didn't disturb me. Sound isolation between rooms is poor.
Coming to food in the hotel. Missed some dishes during the breakfast... E.g. they offered only scrambled eggs, but no Spanish tortilla or blintzes (which is a standard in other spanish hotels). Fried bacon was, to my taste, too dry.
Buffet during the day and in the evening was good. Not excellent, but for the hotel buffet - good. Several types of fish and meat dishes, fresh fruits and sliced vegetables, ice-cream, two types of soupes, etc. I couldn't complain.
Internet - Wi-Fi connection was stable and quick enough to check e-mails and news.
In spite of my first impression I enjoyed my stay there.
