Spent the first week in October here and was very happy with it. Had a room on the 2nd floor with view of wetlands and down to the harbour. Room was a little dated and could do with some decorating but was cleaned every day and that's more important to me. It didn't have a working safe which was a...

This was my second visit and we booked a superior twin room with Alpha rooms with a request for a high floor and good views. We were given a room on the fourth floor with 2 balconies. From one we could see the sea on one side and Punta del Moral on the other - beautiful. The beds were really...

Spent a lovely week here all inclusive at the end of Sept/beginning of Oct. I had an extremely clean room with a gorgeous view of the wetlands and harbour. Decent enough choice of food, particularly if you like fish and seafood. Excellent selection of all inc drinks - especially gins! Close to beach, 10 mins walk to the marina. Very...

Night entertainment could be better, 90% geared for children. Quiet relaxing place, not many bars or shops nearby, a few in the lovely marina about...

The one thing I have to say was that I was very impressed with this hotel which out weighed the not so good bits....

Worst hotel I have stayed in for 30 years. This hotel should be downgraded to 2 star as soon as possible. How it ever got 4 stars in the first place 20 odd years ago is beyond me...... Foyer very grand apart from all the tatty plants hanging down. Arrived and was greeted by staff wearing pirate costumes with plastic...
