A very nice hotel right in the city centre (note: that's a long way from the beach!). Big comfortable air conditioned room. Good breakfast restaurant on the 9th floor with a great view of the city. Suprisngly they don't seem to have a main restaurant but it's hardly a problem as the hotel is surrounded by restaurants.
Prices were pretty reasonable but as my stay overlapped with the Formula 1 the prices weren't so reasonable that weekend.
It has free internet but the speed was so eye wateringly slow that it may as well have been on permanent siesta and that made it difficult for business.
I think this is the only hotel I've been in where there wasn't a single TV channel in English; not even CNN or BBC world which is very strange for an international hotels and confirms Spain's introspective view of itself.
