This hotel has amazing views, the staff are lovely, the room we had was spacious. We had a relaxing time and enjoyed the large balcony with fantastic views. The breakfast was very standard for albania, not great, but nothing bad. We ate in the restaurant at lunch and the food was really good, however waiting service is not great. The hotel itself is kept tidy and clean, and is in a nice area near to some great restaurants.

A new but nice hotel. Excellent location just above the sea, super quiet and clean, nice staff and beautiful ambience. Last but not list the super tasty food. Fresh fish and sea food as nowhere else in town.

We stayed only for one night, during our visit at Sarande on July.
I was expecting to stay at a decent hotel, especially after reading so many good reviews, but unfortunately I was totally dissapointed.
I will start with the good things. The room was really HUGE and the view from the balcony was very nice. The location of the hotel is also convenient, only 10 minutes walk from town center. The bathroom was big too and had an impressive Jacuzzi which I did not use.
Now the negative things...
The room was not clean. The couch was dirty, the bed linen a little dirty too, the slippers were already used and in the room(triple room) there was only one glass for drinking placed on a paper towel that was dirty and used. All these can be seen at the photos that I attach.
It had no blackout curtains therefore you wake up very early in the morning because of the sunlight. That is a problem because in combination with the noisy nightclub that is next to the hotel and plays the music loud till 2 am, means that your sleep at the hotel is just horrible. Do not forget to bring ear plugs with you.
The breakfast was simple and below average and for sure not the breakfast of a 4-star hotel.
One more thing that is important is that the hotel would not accept payment by credit card.Even though I booked it through an online booking site with my credit card and in the reservation confirmation it clearly stated that they accept Visa, MasterCard and Maestro, when we checked out we were said by the receptionist that they accept only cash! We were just lucky that we had the specific amount with us at that moment.
Finally, the price of 80 euro that we payed for a night, is in my opinion too much for such services and quality, especially for Sarande/Albania which is relatively a cheap destination.

We made a family trip from Montenegro, and stayed 2 night at Jaroal Hotel, It was so amazing place no one wanted to leave, great rooms with huge balcony facing the water front, great staff, good service and they have a own private beach and free parking.
Very close to the main street were people walk at night and enjoy the restaurant and their little shops
I will definitely stay here again and cant wait to go back.

Please see the pictures,,, :)

Room Tip: Book the room 304 has huge balcony, but no worries if you cant book that room because all the rooms...

We upgraded the room we had booked for six days (primo July 2013) and were given the penthouse, which has a spectacular veranda and a stunning view of the bay of Saranda and across the straits towards Corfu. SPECTACULAR! Hotel Jaroal has its own private beach and out-door restaurant, and is located very close to the seafront promenade and a choice of restaurants. The owner, Mr. Ali, is a very nice guy and the staff is helpful and welcoming. I recommend Hotel Jaroal for a pleasant stay in Saranda!

Room Tip: Aks for the penthouse! At 80Eu/night it is worth it.
