I stayed here for a week during a conference. The hotel is in a fairly quiet area about 30 minutes walk along the beach to the old city. There is a bus nearby that does the trip and you can purchase a 5 day tourist card at the information center. It is a short walk to a nice beach.
It is modern with clean modern furnishings which sometimes seem to value style over function (chairs sitting off by themselves, no luggage rack or maybe that's the sofa, a soap holder that dumps the soap out, a closet door that closes one half and opens the other so it is never fully closed, a see-through bathroom door, a pull up on the tub spout for the shower that only can be pulled up if the water if off...). These are mostly amusing.
Noises intrude from the hallway because the door doesn't fit tightly. It also has no automatic closure, and no chain or peep hole for those who are security-concerned though this did not seem an issue.
The bath has little opportunity to hang clothes for drying. TV is modern but small 21" by US standards with 20 Spanish and no international stations.
The staff is friendly and I had no issue with my lack of Spanish.
The breakfast is excellent and there is a fixed price daily dinner menu (23 Euro) which was an extremely good value and excellent. The restaurant is really nice.
Prices for beer and wine in the bar and in-room minibar were reasonable. There is a spa and a pool though I tried neither. Free internet. They have free newspapers but only in Spanish.
Despite how they try to sell it I wouldn't characterize this as a resort hotel or spa but it is good for the business traveler unless you happen to get noisy folks in the hallway.
