“Clean, but that is the most positive I can say about this hotel..”
Reviewed 28 September 2011

We arrived late (1am), and I honestly just wanted to turn around and find another hotel.. The room smelled like it had not been opened for several years, and it was hot and sticky..The furniture was old and curtains and AC was beond outdated... But it was clean, and no bugs. We decided to stay the first night and see the next morning.

Breakfast...maybe I'm picy but I just couldn't eat there. Eggs, and bacon were both soggy, and nothing really looked appealing...There was a selection of bread and pasteries, yoghurt, cereal and fruit - but presentation....Anyway, we found a nice little place by the beach that served omelette and coffe (the omelette was not on the menu and they served us before they even opened:))

We stayed 3 nights. Torrevieja is not the place for luxury, we could not find anything but 3 star hotels, afterall this was probably a ok choice for this area. The room was big and clean, and service Ok for a 3 star hotel!

We've been in Torrevieja at the end of August 2011 with two of my girlfriends. We've stayed in Cabo Cervera for 8 days and we had bed & breakfast option. Rooms were spacious, clean and all of the rooms have got sea view. Our was on the 9th floor and we had a fabulous view from our balcony. People at the hotel were very friendly, polite and helpful. There was an entertainment at the evening, mostly for the children and in Spanish language but there was also bingo for everybody and a disco on Saturday for adults. Despite of the fact that we barely know any Spanish we've been welcomed very warmly be Spanish tourists. Most of them were families with children.
There was a large variety of food at the breakfast buffet and everything was fresh and nicely prepared. Beach was only 10 minutes walking from the hotel. Very quiet area, the bus stop is just next to the main entrance to the hotel and it gets to the town center within 15 minutes.
Overall we spent fantastic time in there I would definitely come back to that place!!

Reviewed 4 July 2011

we stayed in this hotel for a week in june 2011. We have 2 young children so wanted a hotel by the beach with a nice pool, this hotel had that. It was very quiet for the first few days, only 10 or so rooms booked from a capacity of around 200..we didnt mind this as it was mainly a base to see family that live in the area. This wouldnt be ideal if you are an english family staying here for the nightly/daily entertainment as there was none initally as the hotel was very quiet. Towards the end of our stay more family's had booked in, none english, all pretty much spanish, then the entertainment kicked in but it was totally geared towards them. The breakfast buffet is great, lots of variety and the kids had plenty of choice. The pool was very clean and the baby pool is particularly nice for the little ones, my youngest is 3 so he loved it...the lifeguard was very on the ball and we felt our kids would be totally safe around the pool area. The hotelroom was a nice layout, separate bedroom and sitting room which was handy, but air-con was only in the living room not the bedroom so it was almost unbearable trying to sleep most nights. The sitting room area had a fridge which was great for juices/water etc..The bedroom and bathroom windows were of a slide design, like patio doors but didnt have locks on them so could easily have been opened from the outside by a stranger or by a child from the inside, wasnt impressed with this so myself and my husband had to sleep with our children to make ourselves feel secure...hotel and surroundings were always very clean and tidy and the receptionists were very polite and helpful. ALL the rooms have a sea view which i thought was brilliant. I may stay here again as a base for travelling but not for a main stay hotel, it isnt geared up for that,unless you are spanish of course! on one occassion a coach load of school children decended on the pool area with no warning to the guests and they took over the pool, which i was shocked with as they were noisy and it was very intrusive, strange thing to happen i thought, as it was obviously a school trip of somekind. Not a hotel to stay in for english families expecting entertainment or things to do.

Room Tip: all rooms have sea views, lots of parking

Noisey rooms!! There seemed to be a temporary bus park around the hotel and the road noise was terrible .The room it self was large and had a nice view ,The bathroom was ok and the beds were very not very comtortale. The freesat tv had no english channels . The food was not great and there was not a good choice.
The pool was closed and the bar facilties were not very good .Tthe hotel was a good 15 minute walk to the main beach and there was very little close to the hotel in the way of choice of restaurants and bars.
You need a car to get any where as the hotel is quite isolated.THE hotel is rated as a 3 *** hotel but feels more like a 2**

The hotel has really large standard rooms with 1 king size bed and 1 extra bed. Every room has a sea view. The bathroom is well equipped and clean.
A pool area in just in front of the sea, so you can observe it from every room as well. The water pool is clean.
A big balcony has enough space to tan, there you will find a plastic table with 2 chairs.
Since the hotel has 2 wings, the sunrise is on the left wing and it is good for tan-lovers,
those who prefer to stay in the shadow (literally) would better ask for a room in the right wing.
The sea is in the walking distance: a 5-minute walk and you can find yourself looking for a place on a local beach. Beach is a sand one.
Umbrellas, towels and other summer staff can be bought in a small shop on the beach. There is a nice wooden seafront road good for jogging and for an afterlunch walking.
You can travel there without luggage and buy everything you need in one of these beach shops on in Torrevieja (Old Tower) city that is 10min by car from the hotel.
The main visitors to these hotel seemed to be familes with children and English pensioners who travel in groups and who made more noise than children do.
Actually the hotel cannot be labeled as a noisy one. Large balcony doors can save you from the noise born in water pool area.
Also there is a short animation program for children in the evening (at about 10p.m.). The animation is closed at a low-season.
Friendly staff can speak English well enough to call a taxi and to give you a key from the deposit box. A free Wi-Fi is offered in the hotel hall.
The breakfasts are good: a standard assortment of hot and cold dishes. The beer in a water pool area is twice more expensive than in a small shop 300 meters from the hotel, on the road down to the beach.
And if you want to drink the bought-in-the-hotel beer from a glass, please ask your waiter for this special option.
In the room you will find Spanish pillows which are 90x155sm, but not those about 70x70 which you are got used to. Please don't worry - this is the main disadvantage in this hotel and in the country sleep culture in general.
A parking area has a place for 10-12 cars.

We had stayed at this hotel some years ago and then the rooms were like small apartments.

The first room we were given was awful. The bedroom was almost an internal room. The only window was a frosted window onto the corridor and felt very claustraphobic. On complaining to the receptionist, she said that all the rooms were like that. However, she did offer to upgrade us to a family room. That was slightly better, the window was a proper window to outside.

Although the hotel has been renovated, some of the bathroom fittings were looking a little tired and there was black mould around the bath.

Breakfast was served buffet-style and there was a wide selection of cereals, cakes, toast, fruits, cold meats and bacon, fried eggs and baked beans. Also, juices, coffee and teas. However, the bacon and fried eggs were cold and slimey. They are strict about timings. One morning we were in the dining room about 9.45am and the waiter came round at 10am saying we only had 5 more minutes.
