I stayed at La Penita for a short trip and enjoyed my time there. The appartements are quite spacious, clean and the bed is really comfortable. I had one of the appartements with terrace and a bit further away from the pool area but that made it so much quieter sitting outside and relaxing in the evening. The pool area is clean and at least while I was there, there were enough sunbeds to always get one. Still, was pretty annoyed that people reserved sunbeds in the early morning and then only showed up in the evening. I think the hotel should be more strict about that. Didn't use the pool bar so I don't know about the quality or price of food and drinks. Internet is only available at the reception area but it's free and quick. A big thank you as well to the staff at the reception. They are really nice and helpful.
The location of the hotel is very convenient. Only a few steps from the main strip, the Avenida de las Playas, but at the same time very quiet. Supermarkets, restaurants, and shops are all nearby. There is a small beach really close to the appartements, for the bigger ones you have to walk a few minutes.
I would definitely recommend staying at La Penita and will hopefully be back myself at the end of the year.More
