As some of the others have said, don't be shocked by the hi-rise exterior, the interior decor is a cool modern take on 70's retro. Rooms are very large and everything works well: airco is quiet and rooms are well sound insulated. Breakfast is outstanding, with fresh fruit,

I have only ever stayed at the Don Carlos Hotel with my husband so don’t know about other hotels or activities for people on their own. However, the Don Carlos seems to have more and more conference bookings and many of the delegates appear to be on their own. However I cannot say whether they stick to their groups or mingle in hotel bars. Try asking the hotel whether there are opportunities for single business people to socialise. I’m sure more goes on behind the scenes. Alternatively do a search on trip advisor for beach hotels for travellers on their own. Sorry I couldn’t be any help.
