We have visited this part of Spain on several occasions and like the vast majority of holiday makers want value for money. In the Hotel Balmoral we found it. Superbly clean, excellent rooms, excellent pool with lifeguard. Lovely gardens and plenty of sunbeds. Being one road back from the sea front the rubbish bins at the rear of the seafront bars but at the front of the hotel were a bit of a downer but nothing that would spoil my holiday. two minutes from the beach and 5 minutes from a small selection of shops and restaurants. The Hotel was full of Spanish pensioners, but we were in Spain, they can be a little noisy but generally were fine. My 8 year old grandaughter had a great time with Mila in the kids club
The food is not the greatest but more than adequate and there was always something on the menu we could eat. Bar prices for wine, beers and coffee and chocolate were not excessive.
If I had a moan it would be the disable facilities. I took my son who is in a wheelchair and we had to remove the footrests to get the chair into the lift, the disabled toilet is ample once you are in but it is virtually impossible to get a wheelchair through the door. Apart from that it was fine and we had a great holiday at a very reasonable price.
A WARNING :- If you want to pay two star prices but expect a five star hotel then this is not the place for you- please stay away in the May half term so there is plenty of room for me, my family and friends to visit again as we surely will.
