Hotel is excellent, staff is perfect always smiling and helpful. Food and drinks were great although I did not understand why you had to book to eat at 3 of the restaurants when they were clearly not full.
We booked this place because we wanted to learn kite surfing. Their water sports facility was great and Borja, our instructor, was superb!
It's true about the pebbles so ladies don't bother about hills - they will get damaged.
Room was huge and with a very big living room. We were close to reception so we just about had some wi-fi.
Overall we had a great time!!!
Anyone fancing water sports, go to kite beach! It's amazing them; even if it is just for a dip in the water... the beach is truly stunning!
