Not cheap. But good quality hotel. Excellent views. We had a suite on the 9th floor. Bed and breakfast only. Breakfast is buffet arrangement. Hot food - inc tortilla, fried, boiled eggs, the usual unfortunate soggy bacon that you get in Med hotels (even though Atlantic strictly speaking). Good selection of cereals and some nice Cerano ham and Manchego cheese.
Very clean smart hotel. The windows could use a rub though. Staff friendly enough, though didn't require them much. Good gym, includes free weights and some cardio machines. Bar area and pool on second floor was fine also.
As some of the other reviewers have noted the hotel was far from full. I liked this and made it feel a bit more exclusive. Blackout curtains in the room were useful as there is so much glass.
Lots of restaurants nearby. But most of them didn't open until after 8pm. Spanish don't like to eat out early. Particularly recommend Lilliam - more expensive end of scale for the island. But relatively cheap compared to London prices. About £65 euros for starters & mains for two plus a bottle of wine. Chickpea and chorizo 'soup' starter was excellent. Tuna main v good. Cheaper end - La Lupe. Mexican place. Starters and main for two plus 4 Tropicals for 25 euros. Also a few decent pizza places along the front and a couple of nice tapas restaurants around the harbour.
Hotel had a deal with the adjacent underground car park to stow the hire car - 45 euros for the week.
Recommend the hotel.
