“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

Stayed here 24th to 31st may got it £735 for two inc flights half board.after reading some reviews i was sceptical but only the english reviews was poor spanish all good so you know it will be good for familys.the staff spoke english when i got thier even though this hotel is in the heart of spain.the staff could not do enough for us.when they saw anniversary cards in our room they put a bottle of cava on ice and balloons on the door a nice touch.didnt get that at the riu cancun in mexico last year for 4 times the price.the hotel very nice and on par with some five star i have stayed in. So go on treat yourself.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

I arrived with my daughter on 23/07 for 11 nights here on half board. First impressions - this is clearly more a three star hotel than a four star. Evident signs of ageing and lack of maintenance, in particular in the pool area (broken/cracked tiles, lights and plastic fittings under water broken). Food is ok, although it is pretty much the same fare every day. Thankfully we did not go 'all-in'. There is not much on offer ar the hotel for those on half board outside of restaurant hours... This hotel caters primarily for Spanish guests - I would estimate around 80% of guests to be Andalucian local families... That is great for us but might not be the best for those who do not speak Spanish or want a more international experience. The best thing about the hotel is that it is set in quite a lot of space, so although the pool area can fill up there are a number of other areas to relax. Standard hotel entertainment fare in the evenings (i.e. pretty awful on the whole but fine for the under sevens and over seventies, I guess. Staff are very friendly and kind, and the spa area is a plus and worth a visit, despite the very low ceiling... All in all, this hotel scores "ok". The location is good, the weather is great, the food is acceptable, and there are several beach bars nearby. Despite its overall tiredness, this is a good but overpriced place to chill out overall.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2009

We were there with 2 young children 1 week.

positive points: nice pool; close to the beach
negative points: noone speaks any language than spanish which is unbeleivable !!! No English, no french, no german, no italian, NOTHING.
No foreign newspapers, no foreign TV channels in your room.
2 Beds for 4 people !!!
Food ok but boring; after 3 days you have more than enough... go to ANTONIO on the beach or the restaurant "B2", both on the beach to the left...
Earliset lunch at 8 pm which is normal in SPain but could be a problem with young children...
Max 3 ***.
won't go back for sure.
