Just returned from a week at this hotel. Lovely weather and only 10 minutes away from the airport. When we booked at the travel agents we were asked if there are any requiremenets we would like. We asked for a sea view and up high. When we were booking in, we was told that for a sea view is would be another 9 euros per day! We decided against this as the room we had did have a side sea view. Our room was excellent, very spacious and clean. The balcony had a table and chairs so you could sit outside in the evening if you wanted. The food was very good and plenty of it - even had champagne in the mornings for breakfast if you wanted, but was not very hot. Had to tell the chef that the scrambled eggs were cold, but they did not do anything about it, just bought out more. Saw people putting their evening meal in the microwave to heat up! The pool areas were great, and water quality very good, always a sun bed available and no towels left on them! Only had entertainment on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The local supermarket was 15-20 minute walk away and all that was near there was a couple of restaurants, a bar, and a souvenir shop, so nowhere to go in the evenings if you like looking in the shops. The nearest place for that is Almeria city which was a 45 minute bus ride. So we used to have dinner late and then just sit in the bar. The beach was sandy and clean but there was large rocks going into the sea. Would recommend the bus service to the City as only cost 1 euro 5 cents each way which was very good for the market which is on a Tuesday outside the football ground whereas if you go with the tour guide to the market on a Saturday, it would have cost 15 euros! All in all it was a very relaxing holiday and was lucky with the weather.
