“Lovely place - shame about the food!”
Reviewed 29 October 2006

This is a good 4* hotel with a wide variety of facilities: large gym, sauna, table tennis, tennis but a cold pool and rather disappointing jacuzzi! The receptionists are helpful especially if you need to know about public transport of which there is very little! Just get a taxi to Sagunto railway station (9 euros) and then a train to Valencia (very cheap!). You can walk along the beach which has a Blue flag and is lovely although the sea was too rough to swim in in October and too cold! There is nothing happening around the area - all the shops, restaurants and facilites are closed from Septemebr it seems - so make your own entertainment at night!
The food is the most disappointing aspect - the evening meal (waiter service) had a selection each night which seemed to be repeated ( a tuna salad could be called Valencain salad, ocean salad or one night called aubergine and red pepper salad - all the same!). The main course was very oily and basic (one night omlette and chips another fried egg and chips or just a boney piece of fish) - not very edible for 18 euros.
The hotel was clean and rooms lovely - large ,lovely clean towels and linen and beautifully kept. The public areas were also well kept.
It was very quiet in October but would probabaly be busier in the height of season. There's a lot of building work going on but it's not too noisey at any time.

  • Liked — large clean rooms
  • Disliked — food quality
  • Tips/Secrets — you have to sue taxis or hire car to get anywhere - don't be fussy about your food!

just got back from here.
Certainly a mixed experience and a fairly cheap break. We got some cheap flights a cheap car rental and the accommodation all booked separately online. I looked for hotel review before we went but as this is a fairly new hotel wasn't too worried when i didnt find any.
May is way too early in the season to go to a Spanish resort like canet in Valencia. It was dead apart from Sunday when everyone heads down to the pretty lovely beach. There is only a couple of hotels built in this quite reasonable size resort, 2 supermarket, a pharmacy, cinema, 2 open ice cream parlours ( not late) and a couple of hotel bars. Our hotel was basically used as a saga hotel. We are in our late twenties and although the saga guests were of our parents and grandparents age were firendly when we were able to chat to them. There was nothing to cater to what anyone who likes some entertainment on holiday would like to do. Our hotel bar closed at mainly 11.30! The saga guests who had all inclusive with a free bar seemed unimpressed by this also.
I get the impression that saga may stop using this hotel shortly due to the unhelpfulness of the hotel staff in general and problems with the food.
We went half board and we found the food to be ok , if not a little dull.
I and my partner are difficult as i am a gluten free chicken and fish eater and he is a veggie who eats fish. We always found something to eat even if it was mostly samey. The chefs at dinner are very friendly and speak good English . they cook fresh meat and fish steaks up for you as you wait on the grill behind the buffet.
Even though this resort is being built we weren't disturbed by any building noise and I think that you could certainly have a nice relaxing cheapholiday here. Car hire is essential as public transport has yet to stretch this far out of Valencia. We did some exploring during teh 4 days we were here and revisited the lovely beaches of gandia further south ( a much better resort but still very quiet). Sungunto (sagunt) about 5 miles from our hotel is most definitely a gem. There is an amazing roman fort, castle and amphitheatre but make sure that you know the opening times. we were chucked out early as it was a Sunday.
Valencia itself was ok during the day but im sure it hots up at night. We were unable to stay till evening as it would have costs us a fortune in a taxi to get home.
