“Brilliant budget hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2010

Stayed at the hotel last year in June and booked straight away to return this year. Hotel is spotless clean and the price of drinks in the bar is very reasonable. Having paid only £11 pp per night this hotel is far better than some of the more expensive hotels in the resort that we have stayed in. The staff are friendly and sometimes you may even get a smile from Cristina (owner/receptionist) The pool area is small with about 15 sunbeds but even though the hotel is full we never had a problem getting a bed. The beach is so close that many people prefer to go there (9 euros for 2 beds & umbrella) The main strip of Carihuela is just behind the hotel with many bars & restaurants including Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Indian etc. We will definitely be returning next year.

I chose this Hotel for value and location.The positive reviews i read on trip advisor encouraged me to book it.I can only give positive results for this Hotel.The Hotel was small as expected but clean and tidy.Our room was as good as many of the larger "named" Hotels.The room was large and spotlessly clean.The maid cleaned the room everyday and clean bedding when needed.The Hotel was in a prime poition just yards from the ceach ,prom and a lovely old style spanish street with cafe bars and shops.(Midnight close).There are many other bards nearby.The SOL Y SOL near dolphin island is a must. 1 Euro a pint ,good food,excellent extensive menu and entertaining staff.Around the area are many great value restaurants and pubs open until closing around the area.I am now looking to make another booking with more of my family.

For the price we paid (£14 pppn in July) can't really fault it. Location great, rooms basic but clean and quiet at night. Its just a shame the owner is such a miserable (MOO). Read the reviews & knew as soon as we checked in that it was her. Totally abrupt and un welcoming. Still, we ignored it and had a lovelly time. Tip: take a baby with you, she will smile at that.

The hotel allows groups of same sex. I thought the larger lout was stamped out. Not in this hotel. The management failed to take control of the situation. Not even an apology to the other guests who where still being kept awake at 3.30 in the morning by shouting and screaming from a group of drunken men. The rooms are clean but the beds very uncormfortable because of old mattress. There was not even any hot water for a shower at 6pm. The shower fitting had a rotten shower head. There is very little room around the pool to sunbathe and the elevated sun deck was claimed by a group of youths with an ipod deck playing drum and base all day. One male guest was parading naked on the balcony despite there being young children present and the balconies are clear glass. This hotel is the hotel from hell. Dont go there. We always stay budget on the basis of we dont spend much time in our room but this is beyond the pale no sleep for 7 nights, I was glad to get home. oh and by the way we booked bed and breakfast which doesnt exist. you can get breakfast in the lounge but you pay extra dining room is closed down.

This hotel was reasonably cheap and clean, although i have to say that the owners of the hotel did not make you feel very welcome at all. They didn't even acknowledge you when you were coming and going and seemed to give us funny looks as if we had 2 heads or something - not friendly at all. Also if you were a little on the noisy side aftyer a night out they told you to be quiet - so not really a good place to stay if you are partying in the resort - more for older couples just wanting to sit by the pool and relax i would say. Can say that we will definitely not be staying in this hotel ever again!!!!!

For such a cheap price I was not expecting much, but to my pleasant surprise I found the hotel to be kept very clean daily, bed sheets were changed EVERY day....yes, every day. the room had everything I needed. A button came off my blouse within minutes the cleaning lady had a needle and cotton for me! My flight out was cancelled due to volcanic ash, the lovely gentleman in reception was just sooooo helpful......thank you sir and I'm sorry I did'nt keep a note of your name but I thank you again for your kind assistance.
