4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Hotel in a reasonable location near beach and close to bars and shopping areas. The pool area is a bit small for the number of rooms in the hotel. Good entertainment during the days and at nights. Good choice of food for breakfast and evening.

A very good all inclusive hotel. Hotel very clean, food and drinks very good, plenty of variety. Check in very efficient and friendly staff. Location very close to promenade and dunes with lovely walks. Suggestions for improvement: The gym could do with some air conditioning & some of the evening entertainment could be better. The biggest negative when we were... More

We have stayed in many hotels throughout the Canary Islands over the last few years and this is one we will return to. We found the location excellent, easy walk to the sand dunes, not quite as easy walking over the sand dunes to the beach but worth it. Bus stops are right by hotel and buses are cheap and... More

I wouldn't have said that this hotel was 4*. Everything about it was average. The rooms are basic, the staff were all friendly but most didn't speak English. The entertainment team was friendly & the shows that they did were really good - especially the "Frozen" show. The entertainment & music all stopped at 11pm so no noise from then.... More
