We were a party of 16, stayed for a week and had a fantastic time. The apartments are spacious, and well equipped., and have a daily maid service. The food was good and catered for all tastes with plenty of choice. The location is perfect, the beach is only a few minutes walk away and it's only a short taxi... More

The staff of the hotel was extremely nice and helpful. Apartments are OK and situation is pretty good. However, please note that this is a place for families. If you are young people looking for a spot to party and meet other young folks, this might not be the best choice.

Great hotel with helpful and friendly staff, a good selection of food. We were bed and breakfast only and the selection was outstanding. Room cleaned everyday and fresh towels. A bit of a walk into albuferia. The beach 5-10 mins away with waters ports. The hotel could do with supplying parasols at sunbeds to get a bit of shade if... More

We returned this year after a great holiday last year. Just as good and still feel that whilst it's only a 3 star hotel, you get 4 star service. Loved the facilities and loved the staff, especially the barman in the sports bar who appears grumpy, but is really funny. Will definitely go back.

The apartment is comfortable with ac in both rooms. It would be better if there was ac at the setting room. These year the animation at the main pool was a very negative point. many people and families like mine want to rest and a quiet pool, and not an all day drumbeat! With all inclusive it's ok (I think... More

The staff here are great, it has the small hotel vibe where you feel you know everyone working there. We stayed in The tivoli in Lagos after and although the facilities were far superior the vibe was far more authoritarian in regards the staff towards us. I would definitely recommend this place.
