This is like Blackpool - German style! Hated it and would never visit here - beach not very nice and just generally tacky - with the Spanish equivalent of 'kiss me quick' hat shops and tacky T shirts shops. Never again. The area is more German oriented with restaurants also catering for that market - good schnitzel on offer!

The only down thing was that the TV was in German because it was... More

This is an appalling hotel. We were met with barely a smile and passing eye contact. The room was so drab, the bed sank right down and was lumpy. The most awful view, which can only be described as overlooking a concrete courtyard overlooking the back of private flats. The chest of drawers was inside the wardrobe but the sliding... More

Stayed here for the last week of the season and had a brilliant time. Staff were all friendly and happy to help with any enquiries. Lovely and close to the beach with everything you need a stone's throw away. Pool might be small but simply do more lengths. I'd happily come back here.

All staff were extremely friendly. Lady on reception was English & very friendly. Three different staff during our staff & all very helpful. Hotel was clean & well kept in general. Rooms service was excellent. Staff very trustworthy! The lift broke one evening & was repaired next morning. Small Pool. Great location 2minutes from beach. Had a fantastic stay here!... More
