Super efficient hard working team, very friendly and welcoming. Ideal location for beach and long promenade walks. Low key night entertainment in the area as expected for this time of year, but if you fancy some late night karaoke we recommend Dixies-Blue-Moon-Karaoke-bar and friendly hosts Johnny and Lisbeth. Thomson Rep Vee gave good information and advice. Only problem we had was with the free WiFi which was so slow that we gave up - didn't try the other WiFi so don't know if it is quicker. The summer daytime activities were only due to start on the day we left and although these are not usually something we take part in we may have been tempted this time due to the lovely girl organising them who has such a happy personality and beautiful smile. Slept OK as we like firm beds. Choice for buffet was very good and there is a microwave available if you want your food hotter. Best (strongest) coffee we have had on holiday + proper fruit juices at breakfast. Reasonable priced drinks in bar. Cleanliness of hotel and the whole resort in general was of a very high standard. Hope the refurbishment doesn't take away the wonderful character of this hotel.

Room Tip: we were on 3rd floor with view of pool + beach, looking down on bar terrace area but were not disturbed by noise

Stayed in a suite a couple of weeks ago, yes agree a refurb is needed and planned but we were very pleased. staff lovely food good . Head waiter arranged grilled fish for us. Clean sheets and Towels every day it was very relaxing didnt hear any noise.
trying very hard to get my husband to return next month , I love the area and the people, and so much to do plus fab sea food. A spa and room service would be great. The cava , wine and fruit in roomwas great plus a salad was served as we arrived late. when upgrades take place this could be five star. Not many people can say that frank sinatra, sofia lauren or Shaun Connery may have stayed in the same suite can they

Room Tip: A Suite is a must

Stayed 22/05-01/06 lovely grand old hotel,full of character,staff are friendly and effiecient.location
super right on beach 5 mins walk from lively marina.Now the downside it's dire need of refurbishment rooms are really quite scruffy, carpets should have been replaced years ago,ours ponged a bit!we paid extra for a garden view ,but on arrival were given a standard room,this was soon rectified when pointed out.The garden/grounds are immaculate as are pools,you will have to pay 20 euros deposit on small worn towels for pool use I suggest you take your own.Fridge/safe are available for hire,I don,t think restaurant could be classed as 4 star,food choice limited and not hot,but usually found something adequate.Entertainment very basic,happy hour 3 times a week helps.A refurbishment is sheduled for early next year,hope it dos'nt spoil the character too much.All in all a nice hotel probably a good 3 star at present.

Room Tip: if you can pay extra for a garden room.(high floor)

I know this is an old hotel but it was visited by the greats, Frank sinratra .eva gardnar , all the arab royals etc. but it is still great.I am going for my fourth time in Sept and looking forward to it
The location is ideal, the food is great and the staff are magic. one of my top three hotels in Spain

Room Tip: always pick a garden room for sun in the afternoon

Hate to agree with most other reviews but agree that in general the hotel is in need of modernising. The rooms are comfortable and cleaned on a daily basis. The location is fantastic and has direct access to the lovely promenade . Food in general is excellent and vaied. We are not lovers of hotel entertainment and although we did catch a couple of shows we were not impressed. We really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and will probably return
