“relatively nice hotel shame about the food...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2012

I will make this review as honest as I can. basicaly the hotel itself (although a little tired) was ok. pool areas are nice lovely gardens and a little outdoor playarea for children. Our room was very small and when we asked for a cot for our daughter( which really should have been in the room already for us) there really was very little room to move. The balconys are really not save for small children at all, our daughter would easily fit through the gaps so our balcony door was kept shut all the time. Location is quite good short walk to the marina and beach.
The main problem with this hotel is the food!!! very poor quality and little choices... and not good at all for children. our daughter wouldnt eat a thing from there we resorted to buying food from supersol and eating out most nights. I tried the fish on the first night cooked on a gridle in front of me... it was awful... the next morning we decided to try the pancakes, these had been cooked on the same gridle and tasted of fish!!!! not good. Like I said quite a nice hotel but would definatly not go back or recommend to anyone because of the food.

WE were at the siroco hotel for seven nights.This hotel has seen better days and rquires a
make over. The rooms were a disapointment and the catering was poor.The entainment was
all rignt but not great , May be I am an old foggie but. there was to many children running around
at night and very noisey.The bar area was good. however I thought it was expensive
I most certainly shall not be returning to this hotel

Room Tip: Not for couples..

Paid a lot of money for one week half board for this hotel and was very disappointed. Paid less for two weeks four star in Salou earlier in the year and could not fault it. The hotel itself is very basic - it struggles to be clean around the public areas and there is very little evidence of cleaning the pool. The restaurant was like a cattle market - unbelievable - and the good was so so. Went out to eat several times. The beds were clean although hard and the pillows like bricks. This hotel looks and feels cheap and basic but the prices are not. No way to have coffee in the later evening. Would not be returning. The hill was not a problem but there were so many places closed around that there was nothing to do apart from go down to the Marina every night - which was lovely.

Room Tip: Our room was a superior one so would hate to see what the basic rooms were like - ask for superior.

i had read all the reviews about this hotel and to be honest i was really quite worried about going. when we arrived we found it a lovely place to be, most of the staff were very friendly apart from the reception. the rooms are quite big, if a little dated, but you don't spend allday in them. the gardens are beautiful and the pool area is good.
the resturant is clean and there is a good selection of food, there is show cooking and while there we had themed nights including, mexican and morroccan.
Belamadena is a lovely place and has some great places to visit, the harbour being one of them.
I would go back to this hotel in the future.

Every thing was just as i expected it, i always read the trip advisors reviews so was not surprised to find it up the hill and by day 5 i could make it back without being out of breath (im quite unfit) the gardens were beautiful and had some great pics taken on the little bridge across the water.
The pools x2 were excelent not to deep and always with a life guard on duty, The Hotel was very good for 3* our standard room lacked a little character but with mirrored wardrobes and a double bed each we were very happy, Bathroom was with shower and bath nice basin set in worktop.
We were full board and they tried there very best to vary the food every day although cooked breakfast was the same each day not many 3* were you have cava every day at breakfast, food could have been a bit hotter but is was never cold and always being replaced.
Drinks were reasonably priced and service was always good.
Yes the staff were a bit miserable at times but but who cares.
We had a lovely stay for 5 days & recomend visiting Tivoli world you dont need kids to enjoy it.

Room Tip: I think the Standard rooms have not yet had a face lift

went there sept 2012, found the staff friendly even the maids said hello.the room was clean but basic the tv was about 10 years old and only picked up one english program and the shower wasnt very powerful and was over the bath.the curtains had small holes in.the whole bedroom needs a revamp.things like the safe or a fridge were extra.the food was ok,nothing special and was the same most nights.we thought the location was good close to beach and the marina.we would go again if the price was right.but dont expect to much.
