A family break on an all inclusive package. Hotel was spotless, staff were friendly and always willing to help. Good variety of foods at all meals and was always well presented. Hotel is literally situated across the road from a large beach but aside from this there is not much else in the surrounding area.

In addition, it is located 45 minutes from the international airport in Portugal and an hour and a half from Seville Airport. The new rooms stand out for their brightness, comfort and facilities such as SAT-TV, air conditioning and heating, a safe deposit box and minibar. Many rooms have wonderful sea views, where you can enjoy the breeze and colours of the Costa de la Luz (Coast of Light). The hotel offers free Wi-Fi both in the rooms as well as throughout the hotel and facilities. The hotel offers its guests some outstanding cuisine, which has been recognised by our customers and awarded as some of the best in the chain, in terms of satisfaction and guest care. In addition to the breathtaking views, the hotel features stunning gardens, a fantastic swimming pool area and exciting sports and leisure programmes designed by our hotel team each week.
