“great location, good price, average place”
Reviewed 12 September 2012

Great location to relax, right on the beach. Has a nice restaurant and very personable staff. Nice place to stay if all you want is a nice beach and to have as little stress as possible. The rooms themselves vary in quality, some are not that nice, but those with a view on the beach are perfectly pleasant. The price can't be beat for a beachfront hotel, and it has a very relaxed atmosphere. It is run by a family with kids running around, and they are super chill about everything. If you want to stay away from a more sterile corporate hotel, this is a good choice.

Room Tip: Try to get one on the beach side (which shouldn't be hard, just ask and they'll oblige if th...

We did not stay in the hotel but went for dinner here one night with our 2 children aged 11 and 9 having spent the day on the beach below. We ordered two starters between us and then tried to order a number of fish dishes but they weren't available. The waiter suggested a local fish dish instead and we agreed. It wasn't on the menu and we have no spanish so presumed it would be in line with everywhere else.. We didn't see a wine menu but asked him for a bottle of house wine. The fish dish turned out to be a sea bass with potatoes and veg which was shared between us. We then had three desserts, two fruit juices, two hot chocolates and a coffee. The meal was fine but not particularly exciting. The bill came to €197 - they had charged us €120 for the fish and the wine was the most expensive in the house. In all it was more than double the price we normally paid in much better restaurants. We didn't bring credit cards with us as we had been on the beach and were €8 short. We asked if it would be ok to bring it down to them in the morning as we were staying locally but they wanted to hold a passport. My very upset 9 year-old managed to come up with another 5 euro and we returned the following day with the outstanding €3.
When we told Spanish friends what had happened they were horrified at the price and the demand for our passports and advised us to make an official complaint which you then send on to the tourism board. When we went to the restaurant to get the official complaint form which by law they are obliged to have, they at first denied we were ever there. Eventually they produced one and we filled it in.
We have been going on holidays to Spain for the last few years and thankfully have never been ripped off like this before. Hopefully never again.

Después de que plasmaran su queja en una hoja de reclamaciones y recibir la visita del inspector correspondiente y tras el analisis pertinente, el hotel no recibió sanción alguna. Ya que los precios están expuestos por varias partes del local y de la terraza además de la carta que se le presenta al cliente.
Un saludo y gracias por su visita.
