The hotel - spotlessly clean, pool area small but lovely, gym well equipped and surprisingly cool given the rooftop location. we were in a room on the side of the building so not a full sea view however this turned out to be good for us due to the heat, as the sun was on the front of the building all day I can imagine a front sea view room would offer no shade where as our balcony although got the sun part of the day was a welcome shaded area in the afternoon/evening. The room was large and comfortable and cleaned regularly. We stayed half board the food was good enough, breakfast was choice of cereal, yogurt's, fresh and dried fruit, cold meat and cheese, bread rolls and lots of different types of pastries,tea, coffee, juices, hot food consisted of bacon, some form of eggs i.e scrambled/fried etc, potato and other Spanish foods like garlic mushrooms or garlic veg, different breads and a toaster. The dining room got very busy during the period of 9am to 9.45am so recommend go earlier then 9am The evening buffet was good enough too, there was soup and bread rolls, a cold starter such as egg mayo, whole king prawns or ham and pineapple, also different types of salads, your basic lettuce etc and different pasta or rice salads, the hot food was always one meat choice and one fish choice as well as a pasta or rice dish, chips and Spanish veg and little desserts for pudding. So plenty to choose from. The staff were friendly enough especially the dining staff they were very helpful and chatty however the reception staff although welcomed you on your arrival didn't offer any information whatsoever about the hotel or the area, not like other hotels I have stayed in. The area is quiet and the shops only seemed to open all day on the weekend when there was a market too. the beach opposite the hotel was lovely but busy on the weekend, during the week you don't seem to see many locals on the beach. An hours walk right or left of the hotel takes you past some lovely rock pools, beaches and harbours, very pretty. there is a pizza bar/café directly right of the hotel which serves lovely lunches, the salads are enough to share and so are the pizzas and I definitely recommend to salmon mascarpone and leek pizza it was extremely tasty and the waiter was lovely too. Further on are a couple of bars these were quiet during the week and busy with the locals at the weekend. I wouldn't recommend this area for family's as other then the beach there is nothing for children to do. This is a great place for couples or groups that aren't interested in the " rowdy complex" style holidays, quiet and very relaxing.
