Amazing little hotel in a quiet street in Carboneras. Set in a really nice area by the beach of the Mediterranean. The hotel is literally connected to the beach. And the view of sunrise every morning is really awakening. No sunset because the hotel is on the east-facing coast. The hotel has a nice pool. It is of a decent...

This hotel was fun, the history of the hotel in famous films was interesting and the staff here were very friendly and always helpful. The rooms were nice and clean. It is a bit of a walk to the main area with restaurants and bars, but the yurt location on the beach make up for this! I would stay here...

To start with Carboneras is a beautiful town to visit. Amiable people that will make you feel welcome. A hotel located close to the mediteranean sea! The hotel itself is a very homely one, with very few but efficient 'family like' staff. They tell you how to get the best deals, take you to the beach, and where to go....
