We based ourselves in the Alanda but with the intention of spending every day on the beach and eating out at nights. Overall the hotel was very good for our purposes and in particular the Alanda beach bar and sunbeds although I do think the sunbeds should have been free or reduced for those staying at the Alanda. Instead the Alanda beach beds were the most expensive around. But they did meet our purpose and the beach bar staff were very good thorughout.
As to the hotel. It is a bit dated now but the rooms are spacious, clean and have excellent beds. As an aside I think the ugly box type TVs found in the Alanda have been obsolete for a couple of decades but we didnt use the TV so not a big matter for us.
The reception could be better. It looks like an old style Soviet Block holiday camp reception. The hotel does not have a bar as such which is a loss. It used to have one downstairs from the reception which was a dreadful place to have a bar hence its failure. But thta dos not mean a more open friendly bar would not attract customers to mingle together. The pool bar was fine though for a G&T in the early evening but closes at 7pm.
Overall though its a good spot for the beach and you can indulge yourself in the Peunto Romano hotel just across the road (which sells UK and Irish papers). Its also good walking distance for a good number of restaurents.
