In general is a nice hotel. It is very different from those giant hotels that you normally meet all around. If you are lucky with the room, you get an awesome view over the beach of El Medano. Location is really top. Keep in mind, there is no WIFi in the rooms, the one you get close to the pool... More

This hotel would only get one star, but the friendly helpful staff have pushed my rating up. The hotel itself needs much improving. 1. Internet is extremely limited. It needs proper wifi throughout. 2.The rooms are hot and bathrooms smelly. The rooms need air conditioning and bathrooms need proper forced ventilation. 3.The upper floors are far too hot and airless,... More

Looking forward to returning in December for winter sun! Breakfast was lovely and staff friendly and helpful. Very relaxing atmosphere and great location for beach, bars and restaurants. Clean rooms with good size balcony to sit out and relax.

It was clean, staff very attentive, no smoking even on the balcony, had to sign a form to say that, at €150 fine. Breakfast was good a great selection. Dinner Ok, but could do with a microwave to warm the food up, was cold. wouldn't go in the pool far too cold.

What a great place to stay. The staff are a huge credit to the hotel, all friendly and helpful. Pool really cold but refreshing in the heat! Plenty of places to sit in the sun by the pool and nice pool bar on hand also. I will be staying here again soon !!

Lovely hotel, great location . Although old fashioned in some ways, the hotel will fit real free spirit people of all ages. Mainly Dutch and German residents. The pool is so closed to the sea there is hardly a point of having it except for a great background for selfies... I can't wait to go back there. There is no... More

The location of this hotel is indeed great and I was served very friendly at the bar, rooms are well equipped and clean - nothing to complain. The desk clerk could be more helpful and friendly, that was disappointing. Pricing is fair for service, location and setting. Anyway, I would book it again.

The hotel is in a prime location right on the beach but dates back to the 80s when it first opened. Our room was quite small and made to feel smaller by the large wardrobe taking up most of the passageway from the outdated bathroom. As a previous reviewer commented, the hotel is in need of some serious TLC such... More
