We had a two bedroom apartment and it was clean and the beds were comfortable inn one room, the twin beds were not. The beach area was to die for and it went for ever and the bars on the beach were all good. English was also spoken by a few staff. The pool didn't open when we were there...

Excellent location and certainly worth paying the extra for a beautiful sea view. Very good pools and we enjoyed the access to the gym facilities. The policy of no sun bed reserving is excellent, helped by the fact that there are many beds available, all with good positions. Very good food but the stand-out thing about our whole holiday experience...

Very nice location and services provided by the hotel. The hotel provides a high value for money. It's close to the beach. The internet connection was very slow and the hotel animation (adults and children) was poor.

I would concur with some of the other reviews in that this hotel is for Spanish families with toddlers. The majority are from servile and cordoba. The hotel is geared around providing entertainment and accommodating spanish tastes. They are well served by this hotel with highchairs, children's areas, entertainment and a cinema. The hotel is lovely and the staff are...

Staff is TOP (some exceptions inside restaurant didn't damage the average). Animation is FUNtastic!!! (swimming pool and family games were TOP). Topics for future improvements: Wi-Fi signal at swimming pool and outside bar (always breaking is really...

The Hotel was pretty good but the village is horrible. The streets were so full of trash as I haven't seen before. The beach in front of the Hotel is very tiny and also has a lot of trash. We went only one time to the beach because we were traumatized when we noticed that we lay on dog poop......

“This was in a Condo so there are different options with views. We spent most of our time outdoors as the weather was beautiful .”

“If you still want to visit after reading this, my only advice would be get a top floor room as you will be disturbed by the furniture scraping on the tiled floors and people clip lopping in the room above you and down the corridors late at night.”

“Book sea view room”
johneC5720PV, 7 Sep 2016 | Read review
“Can hear occupants in the next room, particularly through the wall sockets at the side of the bed, can be disturbing if someone has a nightmare which I experienced with the occupants in the next room to me. Unfortunately someone in next room must have had a nightmare and I thought the patio windows were going to be smashed and also problem children crying and adults shouting but this may be because the Spanish can be very excitable.. Hotel was occupied by mostly Spanish, English were very thin on the ground and also the Spanish were on their holidays and children were not due back to school till around the middle of September. Would stay at hotel again but not when the Spanish have their annual leave. And so many babies, population explosion. ”
