Reviewed 11 January 2011

The gym, jacuzzi, sauna, snack bar etc which were in the description when we booked were NOT available (in jan 2011) due to it being quiet. Fair enough... but then they shouldn't advertise these features!
They also didn't mention in the advert that some of the facilities were chargeable, e.g. billiards, gym, jacuzzi etc. All about 5 euros/hour if I remember rightly.
We felt a bit put out so we asked for a free upgrade to a Sea-View Room and were given it no problem - the reception staff were excellent. So... having paid only 35 euros a night (through hoteis.com - cheapest site we looked at), we felt quite satisfied in the end.

Our sea-view apartment, was a big improvement on the 'Mountain-View' one which was dark and was pretty much north-facing, looking onto some nearby trees (and a distant mountain was visible on one side). The Sea-view one faced NE and faced the reception and pool a bit more than the sea but this had the added bonus of us being able to pick up the WiFi signal from our balcony!
The hotel is RIGHT ON THE BEACH! And it is a stunning sandy beach... many miles long! The good thing about being there in January was that there were very few people on the beach. Yet the weather was around 19 degrees and mostly sunny so we were sunbathing etc everyday. The sea wasn't too cold either, but it had big waves so not suitable for very young or weak swimmers. Parts of the long beach may be calmer at other times of year, but the bit directly in front of the hotel had a sandbar so good for surfing and playing in big waves, rather than gentle swimming.
The 'minimarket' in the hotel looked very poorly stocked, with many shelves empty and was probably over-priced - although we didn't go in because when we went to look at it it was closed (during it's opening hours!) while the lady worked in the laundry across the corridor. So.. it was a good 2km trek along the beach, or road if you prefer, to the supermarket, Zarco, and other shops. I don't think there are any restaurants very nearby, but the hotel offered to take us to their sister hotel in the town which had a restaurant. But we were keeping things cheap and doing self-catering, so didn't take them up on that. The kitchenette was OK: no oven, no masher, peeler, toaster etc as seems to be the norm in these kind of places, but there was a good selection of pans, crockery etc.
Overall... we were happy cos we got a good deal, the apartment was perfectly adequate and the beach was amazing.

Average **** hotel 5km out of the center. Clean, small pool, and splendid beach.
Be aware there is not much shade, both at the pool as at the beach. Also the waves in the sea are strong (stream upwards to westpoint) so dont leave your small kids in the see unattended. There is no liveguard.
There is a (food-)store and a chinese restaurant. ATM, Free shuttle to and from the center.
Rooms are average, it is very quiet day and night. Very polite staff.

Very good location, on the beach. Good breakfast. No dining.

Rooms with sea view are recommended.
