booked online, only had trip advisor reviews to go off.
The room and ensuite were clean, the maids changed the beds 3 times during the week and the towels daily. All staff were helpful and friendly. Thanks to Fernando and Juan for the prompt bar service.
Very close to beach, shops and entertainment. The other holidaymakers (most have been going there two or three times a year for donkeys years) welcomed new guests and were quick to share experiences by recommending good restaurants and outings.
Better than a particular supposedly 4* hotel we once stayed in!
Bear in mind you get what you pay for and you'll have a great break.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a balcony as the others are to the front of the building and you will definately be disturbed by the bin wagons 01.30.

Yet another great stay at the Tiburon, I don’t really have much to add, as have reviewed this hotel a number of occasions, I know a lot of regulars are worried about the changes but other than moving the reception desk and no longer employing misery guts on reception, we didn’t see any changes.

It was still as good, clean and pleasant as ever.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view on a middle floor.

Stayed at the El Tiburon for 10 days, 28th Aug - 6th September. Could not fault the hotel at all. Spotless, cleaned every day including Sunday. Staff brilliant and friendly. Only small pool and terrace but enabled you to meet other holiday makers. Location is great. Only fault was no air con, but we were facing the front of the hotel and it was a bit cooler. We did ask for a balcony but there was not rooms left. Had breakfast a couple of times and was not too bad at all.

We chose this hotel as it was at the cheaper end of the scale and we needed a break. When we arrived I was surprised how attractive the reception area was. We checked in quickly and easily and the room was a decent size and a decent bathroom.
We were on the first floor overlooking the pool. Pool is good but there were days we had to go straight out when the pool opened to secure a spot. It was cleaned every day as were the rooms.
The hotel is literally 2 minutes from the beach and the main street/bar area.
The hotel does all 3 meals and a bar service so you don't really have to leave if you don't want to. Food was reasonably priced and good enough.

Stayed here for 4 nights recently at the end of August. There's no a/c in room 306, just a fan that barely turns so might as well be non-existant! Extremely hot during peak season, impossible to sleep. On arrival the staff weren't welcoming or friendly, no smiles at all! I wouldn't recommend trying the food, it's salty and greasy - much better off walking 2 mins down the road and eating at a local restaurant with fresh seafood.

The location is very good, the beach is just behind the hotel maybe 1 minute walk. The town centre is much further down. But the area has a lot of restaurants and beach side bars in walking distance. Plenty of shopping around - so well recommended. Except don't stay in this hotel if you're not on a major budget!!

Room Tip: Request a room on 2nd floor. 3rd floor will kill you with the heat and no AC!
