We were very pleased we chose to stay here for a week of our family holiday. The decor is smart and clean. The rooms are above average for European hotels and feel more spacious because they have high ceilings. There is an excellent buffet breakfast with plenty of fresh fruit, meat, cheese etc (and even Cava!) Others have commented that it is in a basement room - it is, but it is well lit so that is not a problem at all. There is no need to look elsewhere for breakfast.
The staff were very helpful. We sought advice on going on a day trip to Morocco and a particular tour was recommended. We were told, rightly, there was no need to book ahead, so there was no doubt as to impartiality in the recommendation. The recommended tour was excellent (and better than doing it independently as the bus takes you places further afield you would not see on foot). We filled in a satisfaction survey while we were there and commented that we would like English Breakfast tea bags in our room (kettles are available on request) and within an hour or so a large number appeared in the room.
Food is available in the cafeteria (and room service, which we did not try). We had one meal and it was very good and not expensive. Drinks were reasonably priced too. The wine selection was very limited though. (If we understood correctly, only one each of red, rosado and white.)
The location is excellent. It is near a very good, clean, sandy beach - just a few minutes walk away. We swam in the sea a few times and saw no reason to look elsewhere. It is about a 15-20 minute walk into the town along the sea front - a very pleasant walk with good views.
Others have commented on the wifi - I did have to log on a few extra times but otherwise it worked well and was reasonably quick. There have also been comments on the air conditioning - this worked fine, though we switched it off at night to avoid getting too cold.
We would happily return and have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.
