Just back from a week at El Tiburon. Chose this largely on TripAdvisor ratings. Great location close to beach and shops. Room basic and very dated but a good size with large south-facing balcony (not really a sea view as stated although you can just see the sea over the building opposite) and it was nice to watch dawn break over the rooftops. Room accessed via an open terrace. Was in an '07' room and the street directly below was really noisy despite it being what I would call a side street. Other rooms may be quieter. Doors single-glazed so closing them dulled sound only a little Ceiling fan adequate for cooling the room. Went room only and ate elsewhere. Staff seemed a bit offhand but I didn't spend much time in the hotel so who knows. I travel mainly for sun and sightseeing so no real problems so far. However I noticed on day of leaving that luggage room did not lock and there was no shower room where guests leaving could freshen up. Real problem was with the bathroom - not that it was particularly small (been in smaller) but so badly designed. Odd arrangement of half-bath with a shower inside and a handrail that seemed to be at the wrong height (and didn't help me at all when I slipped on the bath surface on the first night when trying to take the showerhead out of the socket). Still in the bath-shower - a silly soap rack that got in the way all the time. I am small and fairly slim but struggled to get through the space between the washhand basin and the door without hitting off the door handle. How does someone of 15 stone actually manage to get into the bathroom? And out? Is it only the '07' rooms that are designed like this? Really very off-putting.
