Hotel San Fermin

Reviewed 5 May 2014

stayed in the san fermin for 5 days end of april start of may. nice clean hotel very central. staff helpful and friendly.food not bad if your not too fussy, something for most tastes.if was only an extra 10 euro on the cost of b+b to go half board so cant complain, altough we ate there one evening and we had a beef stew, all i can on that, is it was only lovely, i had seconds.just to note if you feel like a hot big breakfast for 6 euro, go to the irish corner bar on the promenade, its straight down the hill on to the sea front turn right and only two away, you will not be disapointed, best breaky by far. paul and jackie from dublin.

We were looking for some sun and to get away from the cold weather in the north of England. This hotel came up on the Easyjet Holidays site for just under £200 pp and it seemed a bargain as it included flights and half board but not transfers. Our room on the 5th floor overlooked the sea in the distance, it was not a large room but met our needs. Bathroom looked as if it had a recent refurbishment. Our first night in the restaurant was a real disappointment, food looked inadequate and a poor choice. Following night we went out for a meal which was excellent. Decided on the following night to give the restaurant another chance and I have to say it seemed to have been transformed to a really decent standard. Enjoyed the Navarra red wine which was a bargain at 8 euros. Used Belamadena as a base for our holiday and I think this was the right idea, could not fancy the resort or any adjoining resorts for a week but if you want value for money and a decent standard of service this hotel may well fit the bill given the incredible prices on offer for April/May.

Room Tip: Take a high room floor 5 asking for a sea view

Just returned from a week here from end of april. Brilliant hotel. All nationalities here which is great. Exceptionally clean, very friendly staff and great location. Slightly uphill for those who struggle but it's not as bad as some make out (and I hate walking). Food was great, tends to be more spanish but you are in spain!!! Always something there you can eat.
Not many negatives but sunbeds were €2 day but stopped people nicking them early with towels and as a married couple ended up with twin beds but If I'd asked I'm sure they'd have changed it.
All in all a brilliant hotel that I'd happily go back to again.

I loved the people around, and the food was great also. Too many options in order to get fat during summer, which is kind of inevitable in this hotel. Nice experience, nice weather and nice country which I plan to visit as much as I can.

Room Tip: I loved the side with the view to the sea.

I spent 4 days at this hotel as part of a golf package deal on the Costa Del Sol. It was rated as 3 star and as it was to be used mainly as somewhere to sleep I was not that bothered about some of the negative views I had read on TA. However I did expect a certain standard and was left dissappointed. It is obvious the whole hotel is in need on some TLC with paint peeling off the outside walls and some areas in dire need of updating. The food (I was only B&B) was pretty basic with a choice of fried eggs one day with boiled or scrambled eggs the next. Many were at best warm having been put out some time earlier. Bacon was plentiful but of poor quality with some cocktail like sausages. There was a limited choice of cereals and pretty pathetic fruit juice. Generally the rooms were cleaned to a reasonable standard but the TV service was basic with only 1 english channel - BBC World News. All in all the hotel was adequate for my golf trip needs but I would not return.
