Recommended yet we were there at the low season 30.05-5.06.2016. The strengths are the food that was fresh various and lean!!! We liked v.clean rooms and the access to the beach at the lagoon; the cons- almost no chance for a free parking in front of the hotel, the leaflet for the car rental was old (outdated) no kettle in...

Car hire at this hotel is a definite requirement due to the busy road outside and lack of pavements at both ends leading to El Rompido and El Portil. English travellers should either brush up on your Spanish or avoid it at all costs. Staff at the hotel were noticably favouring Spanish guests and ignoring us at the reception.We only... More

Nice rooms, clean and nice spot. Improvements: variety of the food, opening hours of the restaurants, price of beverages and the use of the SPA. A four star hotel should have a free spa. Even if you have a voucher you can only use it once and kids are only allowed in the morning, not pleasant at all. Nice policy... More

Pros: - Pools, slides and spa - simply phenomenal quantity and variety; - Many, if not most of the rooms, have nice views; - Bathrooms a very generous size with separate bath and large shower; - Good proximity to Seville (1hr15), Tavira in Algarve (1hr) and nice local...
