Good enough
€250 euros for a 2 night bed breakfast and evening meal. Breakfast was good enough, bed was comfy, dinner was satisfactory. What more can you ask for. Good price, clean, friendly, comfy bed, nice food.

Lovely pool area and good location. The check in took ages as they make you sit down whilst messing about with your passport and then ask you to come to the desk again later- a real faff after a long flight.

Needs a refurbish!
Hotel is dated, rooms are old, paint on walls is chipped. Lobby staff was quite dismissive at times. I would not stay at this hotel again as the area has other far better choices for similar price. Lobby staff were cold and unbothered...some might say rude.

A great hotel
Great surroundings and close to the beach. Good food quality and selection. Would recommend to stay here. The waiting staff were overall ok, quite curt and one lady was quite rude. But aside from this small incident, it’s a really nice hotel.

Pretty good. Cons: No tea/coffee facilities in room - bring own kettle. No food served in either pool bar. Bathroom towels v thin (pool towels fab - we used those). Rooms a bit small and tired (but bathrooms modern and nice). Pros: Nice, helpful staff. Food and choices good. Nice location - short walk to La Caleta and El Duque.

7 night stay October 2021
Hotel very good and staff courteous and helpful. Choice of food excellent. Drinks expensive. Bedroom could have done with a tea/coffee machine. Don't belive the Hotels. com website when they tell you that you have a part sea view, what I had was a road view. The 68 steps to get to the beach was tough going after a few days especially getting back up. Poolside beds were being booked from 7am despite the hotel being adults only.

right in front of the beach (3min walk), huge two swimming pools, convenience store at the entrance of the hotel, bus stop in front of the hotel, parking available, rent a car available in the hotel, gym and spa were great. We will come back.

Nette en ruime kamers, personeel heel vriendelijk. Eten in het algemeen goed. We vonden het juist spijtig dat er stond dat het restaurant aangepaste kledij wenst terwijl er zoveel mensen in slippers en tanktops waren, ook bij het avondeten...dat vonden wij niet kunnen. De infinitypool en beachplaats vonden wij superleuk. Het is een hotel dat we in het algemeen wel zouden aanraden
