“Impossible noise”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

I think out of all the reviews I have written on here, this is probably the most difficult one. The staff were friendly. The hotel was clean. The price was incredibly low for the room. We had a lovely sea view for seemlingly no extra cost. However, we were very relieved that we had only booked one night in this place. The noise from the club below was unbearable and there seemed to be very little to do in this hotel in way of facilities or entertainment. I don't think I could have coped more than one night in this hotel. I think if this hotel could be transported somewhere else, it would probably be quite pleasant but being right on top of the main strip is not the best place to be. I can't say it's particularly the hotel's fault and they do what they can but this place is definitely not for me.

Room Tip: Although it is great having a sea room, it is right above a noisy club so it might be better to have...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

I stayed here with my partner and our 6 year old son. We had a room with a double bed and 1 single. The bathroom was separate with a bath/shower etc. The room had a tv with bbc news, but that was the only English channel.

There was a fantastic view of the beach from our balcony, which was great to look at first thing in the morning!! It was a little noisy at night due to the pubs/bars but that's what holidays all about!

We had breakfast included with our stay, which consisted of a selection of cereal, different types of bread and rolls, meats and cheese. There were various types of jams and juices as well as hot drinks.

I would recommend it here and would stay here again :)

Room Tip: We were at the front of the building on the second floor- room 207 was good for view.

just back from a 5 day stay at this hotel. The staff were extemely polite and friendly. nothing was ever too much for them. Breakfast was very substantial and plentiful and fresh. we had a see view which is also opposite the disco but a set of ear plugs drowned out the noise.
room was serviced every day too
would definatly recommed this hotel and the staff are a credit to the management.
