I booked this package with Expedia and paid extra for sea view. Upon arrival we were told that room is not ready but we have a suite which is nice. We were there only for 5 nights and tired so took that offer. Room 1107 which was a lovely suite with extra room for sitting room and the view from our bed was still amazing. We could see the park and sea. Just did not have full sea view that did not bother us. Room was very clean and as good as 5***** until we noticed that a/c was not working. Customer service is very slow. That evening we got an engineer who said this is not repairable. We asked to move but were told not tonight we are fully booked. Tomorrow if possible they will try!! We suffered the heat that night with noise from main road being a Saturday night till early hours of morning. Next day when we again asked to be moved we were told they will send an experience engineer! Why could that not do that on previous day? It was bit better than previous day and the manager who was looking after us said there is no guarantee that it will be any better if we were moved. Now we had no confidence and decided to say put then waste time. We kept our windows open which gave wonderful breeze as the weather was cooler but not cold. The noise too had got better as Saturday is the busy time or we got use to the noise. However the room was very comfortable and perfect.
Breakfast was also very good and plenty to choose from. But the buffet dinner in the evening had not one vegetarian dish and they did not offer to make anything for us either, so we opted out of the idea of HB. The pool area is not big enough and it wasn't even busy period. The beach is only few steps away and beautiful however there were not deck chairs or umbrella. You have to go further toward Puerta de Carmen. Which also has variety and choices of restaurant. Very lively street to spend your evening. Its only 20 minutes on bus ride which you can pick up at the end of the promenade from this hotel. Services are frequent except check timing for the weekend. We hired bikes for 2 days and that was wonderful on the sea cost which has wide roads just for pedestrians and cycle route. Its easy ride even for beginners. We cycled from Arrecife to Puerto de carmen and back. Please try this if you can cycle but don't have confidence on main road. I would definitely go back to this hotel.
