Reviewed October 29, 2016

Stayed at this hotel for a week in October. The hotel is really nice, very clean, rooms are spacious (our terrace was huge!). 90% of the guests and staff were Spanish, but this is not really an issue - you can always find a way to make your wishes understood, and the reception staff all speak English and are extremely...

This hotel caters almost exclusively for Spanish people. Only some of the day-time staff at reception speak sufficient English / German. All staff we met were very friendly. Rooms are clean, 125 cm wide firm beds, large bathroom with bath and seperate shower, most times with hot water, noisy plumbing, toileteries, large cupboard storage space, good size balcony.

I had read reviews before booking so already aware it was a Spanish orientated pleace to be. I loved it because of that.

Stayed for 3 nights in June on BB. Lovely rooms and facilities. Great pool facilities, especially if you have children. The grounds were spacious and well kept. Not loads of choice to eat out on the doorstep but plenty in Vera town. Plenty of entertainment day and night but mainly in Spanish. Thoroughly enjoyed our short break and would definitely...
