Pretty much everything is closed in winter i wouldnt recommend. However in the summer im sure is great. I cant praise the 2 receptionists enough, they were both so wonderful. Helpful and friendly and couldnt do enough for us. The spa is quite poor but yet again i think in winter not much is taken care of.

Located in marina Verudela, the location is excellent. But on the other side, you cannot swim in the sea. As solution: there is a small outside pool. Apartments are big and spacious. The equipment is relatively old, so the owners should consider about renovation. For four stars you could expect little more. The staff is very helpful and kind. They... More

We stayed here recently during Dimensions festival, It really is a hidden gem, trendy, clean, fabulous location, without the silly price tag. You can opt for a 2 bedroom apartment, which inevitably costs a bit more money, but for us this hotel more than served its purpose (we had a one bedroom apt.) The main bedroom is a good size,...
