“Noisy Spanish youngsters!”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

The Hotel is good value, the food was ok, we did'nt touch the chicken cooked on the grill as twice it was pink ! The hotel was clean and the staff very helpful although not able to communicate well in English!
The sunbed and tables were not cleaned at night resulting in drink stains etc but once we mentioned this to reception they were cleaned every morning, well done!
The weekend Spanish young guests were a pain, as soon as they arrived the lovely ambience at the Hotel disappeared, they were jumping over balconies, rowdy obviously being let loose and making the most if it! Pushing and shoving in the restaurant, and very very loud round the pool, that was a real shame. The other reason I would not go back is the remoteness, no shops or anywhere to wander in the evenings, but this would suit some folk well, entertainment ok, the team work hard as do all the Hotel staff. The Spa did not entice us, high prices and u have to wear a silly hat which of course you pay for!

Room Tip: It's worth paying for a superior room, they are spacious with good views.

Lovely clean hotel, we had a sea view with a view over the national park,huge room and balcony.Staff were very friendly very little English spoken.Food choice was excellent but sometimes a little cold but meat was cooked to perfection on the grill.Loads of different fresh fruits.Our room was on the 3rd floor 1322 very quiet.Car hire at the hotel was the best.A 20 min walk into El Rompido lovely little village, Taxi is 14 Euro's bus is 1.38 Euro's.All inc was great, national brand drinks.Weather great a little windy but helped to keep cool.Pools very clean and relaxing plenty of sunbeds.Air con was very quiet. We were there for 10 days on 1st June 2014. would book again, handy to drive into Portugal.Thank you to all the staff.

Room Tip: High floor side view.Room 1322.

Visited this hotel in June for a weeks holiday.the room was ok overlooking the pool and sea and had a lovely view.
The night entertainment was very loud and also the Spanish guests stayed up till about 3in the morning making a lot of noise.
The food was poor and not kept very hot.
The staff were helpful .

We were suprised to be given a Sea & Pool View 3rd Floor Room when we arrived as we were only allocated a Mount View Room. The room was very pleasant and had a Superb View.
We were informed by other guests that it was very quiet the previous days but then the Hotel was over run with Spanish Saga Guests. They stayed for 2 Nights then all Hell Broke Loose when the Hotel was 'Taken Over' by Very Rowdy 20 to 30 year old Spanish Weekend Visitors.
These Intimidated the Brits who stayed in the Hotel, Pushed in the queues at the Bar and in the Dining Room. (Nothing was done about this by the Hotel Staff. Obviously the Hotel Value their visit more than the Brits).
These Yobs sang Football Songs and 'Mocked the Brits that had complained to Reception about the noise through until nearly 3 O' Clock in the morning keeping other guests awake.
We were very glad that we had hired a car and get away from the hotel during the day.
The Evening Entertainment is as poor as I have seen in any Hotel that had any. It consisted of Mr. Garden Playanatural , Men Versus Women and a Quiz. On the other 4 nights there was nothing on at all.

Room Tip: Rooms that don't overlook the Pool may help you get a better nights sleep.

We were given a lovely room with a sea view and it came with a 2 metre wide bed !! The pool area ( 2 pools ) was nicely laid out . The staff were very friendly and helpful ,the hotel was cleaned to a very high standard . The food was varied and the fresh fish ,usually cooked on the hot plate, was great. My major gripe ,foodwise, is that the charcuterie that you normally see on the lunch and dinner buffet was only available during breakfast ,which reduced the buffet starter choices somewhat .My only other complaint is that every european country seemed to have an entertainment channel except for the English speakers ,who were 'offered' MSNBC a business channel with a bit of news thrown in . When will Hoteliers install a decent satellite system ? Another plus is free wi-fi in all the rooms.. Overall no major complaints.

I stayed here with a group of friends for three nights. My overall impression of the hotel was very good. room was spacious, well furnished and very clean. Food was excellent, lots of choice. Freshly cooked steak, chops, lamb at night. Wine very reasonably priced, house red a syrah at 4.60 euro a bottle. Hotel fairly busy with Spanish Easter holiday, waiters and waitresses friendly.

Would stay here again if in the area again.
