This place is awful nothing good to say about it! Broken shower was never fixed, replacement keys not available, air-con sounds like planes taking of! Piles and Piles of dirty laundry in reception. Breakfast - Off milk and 6 month old cereal.The swimming pool resembles a bird bath. Evening entertainment - CD on a loop (awful Spanish pop music) This place could do with a good.... Bulldozing.

NEVER NEVER NEVER Stay at this hotel unless you are absolutley forced to. It is a hell hole. As one spanish cab driver who picked me up from here said, "it is hotel big [--]*.
The rooms are like prisons, the air con doesnt work, and my balcony view was one of a 1970s delapidated noisy generator. There are approximatley 5 sun loungers to every 1000 guests and the bar opens for about 10 mins each day. There are no English speaking guests either and you very quickly work out why. I truly felt like I was on a set for "Fawlty Towers, does Spain"and that is being very generous. I truly doubt a film crew would touch this place with a barge pole unless it was filming "prisoner cell block H2.
A true horror to be avoided at all costs, so awful it has put me off Spain forever.......

We live near Torrie, and some friends booked 3 nights in here, albeit at a low price. Still a waste of money, they had to be moved after one night. The whole complex is VERY dated, the sort of thing Torrie Council have been trying, mostly successfully, to eliminate over the past 10 years. Room tiny, aircon, not working, food - literally - inedible.

Summa Hotels should be ashamed of themselves and Torrie Council should order the whole complex's immediate demolition. At least that would mean the roaches would have to find somewhere else to live.

The one star hostal we moved them to at very short notice was clean, bigger and airconditioned. And cheaper!

WARNING: This complex also masquerades under the name of the Medina Azahar, which is even lower down on Trip Advisor's list.

Not a nice hotel, definatly not 3*! Stayed one night before checking out and checking into the sister hotel which was one degree better.
It is quite close to the beach, the food is edible. The pool is unbearable, even to look at. There were no English people at this hotel, all Spanish. You are better off staying elsewhere.
