Receptionist Lasura was excellent in our time of need, can not praise her enough. Rooms basic with no fridge minibar or coffee making facilities, but clean and decent size. Breakfeast which is included was excellent, one of the best that we have experianced

We were there for three nights, half board, and very much enjoyed our stay. From check in to check out, all staff we encountered were extremely helpful and efficient. Our room was very comfortable, spotlessly clean, and spacious, with an efficient...

This hotel has an excellent seafront position. The 10th floor is great with superb views of surrounding area - mountains to the right, sea and beach in front of you and view to town centre to the left. The promenade is very flat therefore making it easy for elderly or people with walking disabilities to walk along this. I had...

We really like this hotel and resort. The bedroom was very clean, with a comfortable bed and nice big bathroom. We had a full sea view balcony at the front of the hotel which was super. Yes there was no kettle and the resort is Spanish, but this is Spain!! Enjoy it and bring your own travel kettle. The best...
