On arrival at the hotel we were offered a welcome beer as our room was not quite ready, a nice touch and 30mins and one refreshing Cruzcampo later we were in our room. The room was nice enough, clean spacious and looked like it would do the job (we were not planning to spend much time there). One negative with the room is that you had to pay extra to use the safe deposit box, we did not do this and had no issues with our valuables throughout our stay. The hotel is located between the busy bar strip containing 'Bierkonig' and the beautiful beach. Our room faced the bar strip and was noisy with balcony doors open but ok with it closed (except for Sat night at 5am). The pool was well maintained and never had an issue finding sun lounges. The food was as expected and did the job. All in all a good hotel and would stay here again.

Myself and my friend recently stayed here for a 5 night relaxing break. This hotel is absolutely wonderful! From the second we arrived to the second we left the staff made is feel so welcomed. They cannot help you enough and are always happy to help. The hotel itself, although situated in a busy area, is quiet and relaxing and we had no trouble at all getting sun beds whatever time of day we went. We were a little concerned when reading other reviews about the nature of the resort but we found everyone there to be respectful and had no problems at all. The food in the hotel is lovely with a wide selection of different cuisines and the theme changes each night. There's something for everyone! The hotel itself is absolutely spotless and the service we received from reception, house keeping and bar staff was all exceptional! Couldn't recommend this hotel enough!
