“Return visit May 2014”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

We have just returned from a three night stay, receptionist Almudena remember us and room requests were honoured, breakfast was very good and we ate out in the evenings not tobe restricted to times. The pools indoor and out together with gym and all facilities were of good standards. The hotel is well placed on the paseo and near local busses etc. many say dated but the rooms are upgraded to retain Spanish character. Thought bar meals increased and not quite as good service on the terrace. Would return to this lovely hotel.

Really great first impression, but had a very small double room and what I only can explain as a shower in a very small bath. Excellent pool and nice bar, but seemed somewhat dated, as this is a four start hotel it needs more to make you come back. Breakfast was also hit and miss, and didn't really offer a great deal for English patrons. Location was excellent as the marina is easily walkable, which gives could access to bars, restaurants and clubs.

First impressions of this hotel are good - the reception area is very grand and impressive, staff are friendly and welcoming, the hotel is well located almost on the beach front, and the pool area looks lovely. However, unfortunately the rooms are just a hit disappointing. The decor is extremely dated in the room and bathroom, our "double" was actually two twin beds separated with a bedside table and our "side room with sea view" was the biggest disappointment - a tiny balcony which looked out on the roofs of other hotels and the sea was just a tiny patch in the distance. Overall we wouldn't chose the stay here again to be honest.

Room Tip: Avoid "lateral" or "side" sea view rooms - you'll just be disappointed with...

Stayed at this hotel with friends and was very pleasantly surprised. Checking in was quick and efficient and immediately noticed how clean and smart the reception area was. We had 2 rooms -both had seaview with modern bathroom. The best thing about this hotel is the pool area which was immaculate and had a fantastic view over the beach. All staff were courteous and helpful especially the barman in the main hotel bar. The majority of guests were older people so no rowdiness or noise in corridors at night! All in all a very positive experience. Would definitely go back.

Just back from one week stay at this hotel, exterior and reception area were spotless, but beware the pool area, it seems clean at first, but cigarette ends all over the place and I never saw it being swept, however the pool was cleaned daily. The bar staff were amazing and couldn't be more helpful, unfortunately I couldn't say the same about most of the receptionists, with exception of the young trainees and the duty manager.
BUT BEWARE IF YOU BOOK A FAMILY ROOM OR TRIPLE ROOM AS THEY ARE ADVERTISED. They are never at any stretch of the imagination meant to sleep more than 2 people ,My two friends and I had to share and they crammed 3 reasonable sized beds in together which left little room for anything else, having complained reasonably, we were told that they couldnt offer an alternative.So crammed in we stayed for the week, with two of everything until we had to remind them that there was in fact three of us sharing!
The food and choice on offer was great, there was something for everyone, and the staff were very welcoming.
The spa facility was very good and the beauty therapist was fantastic, worth a visit.
The only thing that really spoiled our stay was on the last night when we discovered there was a cockroach sharing our digs..

Room Tip: Front of hotel has best the best views. Book extra room if more than two people in the party.

So overpriced. On the surface the rooms looked , but we had to move our room 3 times because of a sewage stench. I explained countless times about the room and at one point standing at the desk the plumber or facilities manager came over to discuss it with the manager. Not knowing I speak fluent Spanish despite being one of the few American tourists in the area, I stood there as they discussed just moving me around because I was complaining and what did I want them to do, that's just the smell... No thanks

What a shame this hotel was spoilt by the poor quality of the beds - if you can't get a decent night's sleep the holiday is spoilt. Otherwise overall good, breakfast plentiful and in a great position by the front. No shopping nearby except touristy gift shops though.

Room Tip: Sleep on the sunbeds!
