    • Couple
      6.6

      Close to the beach and not problematic parking.

      Far from city center, staff did not speak English. Food was average.

    • Couple
      6.6

      comfy stay, only 10mins to beech, bit out of town, nice if looking for a quite location.

    • Family with children
      5.0

      Flexibility in times of meals. Comfy seats in lounge. Ease of parking (in adjacent street). Value for money.

      Beds poor and only one lumpy pillow. Decor jaded. This is a resort for mainly Spanish visitors and so accomodating other nationals is secondary. Quality of food was poor, particularly cooked food. Pool table wasn't functioning. Bar wasn't manned for times we were there after dinner. Pool wasn't being used at time of our stay and looked as if it needed a clean. TV was an old one with only a few channels and only one in English (Eurosport). Our room was infested with ants at any time food was left around. The air conditioning is set to go on when the external temperature reaches a certain level. For us the room was too warm at night and the air conditioning didn't go on. Opening the balcony door on our final night led to an invasion of mosquitoes from the nearby salt pans. We stayed 3 nights and didn't have our towels changed.

      This is a very poor hotel at a unattractive location. Eating is like being at a Sovjet "stallovaja".

    • Older travelers
      4.2

      The staff were friendly

      The beds were awful & most uncomfortable. We would not recommend this hotel, except to backpackers !

    • Older travelers

      I have stayed at this hotel several times before for one or two nights. It is ideally located about 100 metres from the beach and easily accessable via a slip road on the main road. The rooms are pretty basic but a decent size all with a balcony, patio table and two chairs. Garage parking is expensive at the Hotel but there is plenty of free parking outside on the road or an adjacement piece of waste ground.

      Having stayed at this Hotel several times during the past three years I would say that standards have slipped. The breakfast although included in the room rate was pretty basic. The beds need replacement mattresses, and although rooms have air conditioning fitted there is always a problem with each room I have occupied getting it to function. I am convinced that it is Hotel policy not to turn on air con in order to save on the high electricity prices in Spain.

      The accommodation was good, the breakfast in the morning was a good selection of either a cooked breakfast or agood selection of cooked meats.

    • Group of friends
      7.4

      no complications, and very friendly staff

      I wanted to have late check-out but it was not possible...It's understandable, though... :)

    • Older travelers
      6.6

      Location and quietness of the area.

      Staff couldn't speak any english, so it was impossible to get any information on local bus services or local knowledge on where to go.

    • Couple
      3.8

      None.

      No off street parking. Cannot even drive up to the building entrance as street gate is locked. Room outdated and furniture and furnishings of poor quality, bed and bedding poor quality. Breakfast is supposedly included but when early check outs before 7am, no provision for this. Clerk at night offered picnick package but staff in morning knew nothing about it. Our room faced the busy n332, others would be directly adjacent to the Pola Park, which is even noisier.

    • Family with children
      5.0

      We used this hotel as a one night stop-over enroute to elsewhere. The pool was small but clean. The family room for 4 was a double room with 2 extra beds pushed in and was therefore very cramped. I could not have stayed there for more then 1 night (and that one night was quite expensive for what you got)

    • Family with children
      6.6

      Location

      Food not so good, air conditioner noisy.

    • Group of friends
      4.6

      Breakfast was good, well laid out and with a good selection. Reception staff were polite and appeared to do their jobs effeciently.

      Swimming area had few sunbeds, no chairs or tables and lots of people making it the domain of children only.

    • Group of friends
      6.2

      Very clean. Breakfast included

      Lumpy pillow. Balcony lights not on. Staff couldn't care less but in fairness obviously understaffed as the dining room waitress had to attend the bar which resulted in no bar service during meal times which was 19.30 to 22.30. Only buffet meal available in the "restaurant".

    • Family with children
      7.8

      Just seconds walk away from the fun, family friendly 'pola park'. The bedding and towels were very clean.

      Didn't have a wide range of food to suit all with the evening meal or breakfast. The pool was dirty.
