This in an excellent hotel for the price and seems a lot better than 2 star. Rooms/bathrooms very clean and cleaners came everyday. We got breakfast included with our stay for the week for only €14 extra for the 3 of us and the selection was great. Perfect location with McDonald s and plenty of restaurants next door. The marina...

We stayed here for 6 days and 5 nights. Upon checking in, there seemed to be a mix up with our reservation so we had to wait for about 15-20 mins at the counter before we were given our room. There was construction going on at the entrance of the hotel so it was quite noisy, but good thing we...

A convenient location close to bus stops, and a level walk to the promenade and beach were just what we wanted. The hotel caters for mainly Spanish clients, well it is in Spain, but the selection of food was wide enough for us. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the beds comfortable. The only problem was waiting for the lifts...
