The wife and I just got back from a week stay at the Natursun.
The location is not too bad, about 10 minutes downhill from Torre train station and surrounded by plenty of restaurants. It's a 5 minute walk from the hotel to La Carihuela beach & prom.
We had a room at the front with seaview (204) and the room itself was OK, with a balcony, air-con and nice powerful shower (TIP: they don't tell you about leaving the hot tap running for 10 minutes before you use the shower until you complain about having no hot water!). There is also a small fridge provided so you can chill some beers or wine. No kettle in room, so we brought our own.
Breakfast was pretty good, the usual continental type with some nice cheeses and cold meats, plus do your own toast and rolls. There is also a couple of chafing dishes with hard boiled eggs and some sort of bacon substitute (actually tasted OK) and tiny sausages. Fresh fruit and juice is also provided.
The pool is small but met our needs (never any more than me in it, I think it was too cold for the locals!). There is also a Jacuzzi which isn't heated, but was obviously warmer due to the relative shallowness. Solarium holds a dozen or so loungers which are comfortable with big, wind-up overhead sun-shades.
The only drawback to this hotel was the noise created by other hotel users on weekend nights (Friday, Saturday AND Sunday). We had a bunch on our floor who were going in and out of there rooms (with booze, etc) every few minutes through-out the night, which didn't seem to finish until about 6am. At breakfast on the first morning following these disturbances a Spanish guest who was with his wife and little boy complained tot he management (as did my wife). I am not aware what actions they took, but it was to no avail because the disturbances (though not quite so bad) continued for the next two nights. On the Sunday night my wife got up and shouted at the youngsters to "Keep the noise down" at some early hour, and the message finally appeared to get through. Where was the management all this time? Is the hotel left overnight without any security?
I would have scored the hotel 4 out of 5 if not for the noise.
