“Good value - pleasant staff - you need to be mobile”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

Hotel looks brand new. It is actually 15 years old but well refurbished. Plain but clean and light (once I found the switch for the blind), Comfortable bed (I like it firm). The breakfast was good though not exceptional. The staff were friendly. I didn't eat dinner in hotel. The one day I considered it the fish available was 'grated bread hake' - not first choice in a fishing port. I had a friendly discussion of my restaurant meal on return.

I would not recommend this hotel for anyone with mobility issues at present. It is right on the edge of town and the pavements are badly disrupted by roadworks. For an active person is a good value and pleasant base.

Excellent hotel for the money
very clean and comfortable
another plus was the staff were also very good

we only stayed b&b but the breakfast was good with a decent choice
just a 10 minute walk to beach and centre which we enjoyed each day.
the only problem is the roadworks outside but when complete will be no problem.

it seemed to have guests that had been there before so that says something
We would definately go back there again.

Lovely modern room and bathroom. Comfy beds and very very clean! Friendly staff - although a bit slow sometimes. Food in restaurant is very basic but healthy and maybe a bit bland for some folks but we liked it - great for kids. I liked the breakfast very much - a very varied continental...if you like your cooked English then you have to go somewhere else.
Pool lovely and very quiet until about 4 pm. Best sunloungers I have ever used - extemely comfy. No parasols cos people use their own telescopic- which can also be used on the beach.
The hotel is about 5-10 min walk from the promenade and there is a supermarket 5 mins Down the hill. It's quiet at night and quite dark. While we were there, they were working on the road and pavement - bit awkward but will be great when it's finished. Take care while crossing the main road especially with the kids.
Just some minor improvements - shelving or similiar in the bathroom - no space for toiletries etc. Something to hang beach towels etc - no balcony. TV - would be nice with some English speaking entertainment channels - we did get BBC World (news) and 1 other news channel. Wifi great but very slow sometimes. Maybe some more entertainment in the evening or in the lobby we played pool a lot....

Room Tip: Hire a fridge - cost 2 euros per day - worth it

First impression of Hotel..OMG its not finished!
Actually inside it was clean and staff fine...It will be all much better when the roads are finished as it was difficult walking into Quartieria due to the pavements not finished!
If you are wheelchair bound l would definitely check it out before l went for availability of getting about...didn't see too much about only the ramp going into the hotel...
I would add the kids enjoyed themselves!!

Would l go again...not as yet would give it a few years to finish!!

Room Tip: Probably a room at the front!

We stayed at this hotel for 10 nights in July. The hotel has very nice aura and looks good outside and cosy inside.
The staff was undisturbing and always helpful. You can find a person 99% time behind the desk in registry.
Rooms are cleaned and made-up daily when the guest are not present.

The breakfast are boring continental and all time the same.
The swimming pool is clean, but the inner yard is somewhat unspacy.
There's a 10-15 min walk to the where the actually town starts.
WI-FI was hardly working (very slow or inactive).

Room Tip: One should not be affraid for East-oriented rooms, as windows have curtains and outside shades for t...

Lovely room which was very clean, beach about a mile away, breakfast basic but good, pool area ok but no parasols. In all a good value hotel but the staff on reception are unhelpful and quite miserable. I asked them to order me a taxi to go the the beach as my mother recently had an operation and the reply was "a taxi to the beach, really?". Settled the bill the night before leaving as we had to go at 4am, we were then told at 4am by a very rude man on reception "you owe me 20 cents for the taxi call". We explained we had settled the bill and were told by him that he hadn't put it on at that time (not really our fault). His attitude really put a bad end to the holiday, also you don't get an itemised bill at the end of your stay which would have been helpful. No help with the bags to our room or to the transfer on the way back. Roadworks outside the hotel and no real pavement. Air conditioning in the rooms is good, no kettle though or glasses even! Would have stayed here again had it not been for rude man on reception at the end of it!

very happy with my stay at Hotel Zodiaco, the room was clean with a daily maid service, the bathroom had fresh towels each day, the breakfast was hams, cheeses, rolls, toast, yoghurts that sort of thing but all fresh and plenty of it, the pool was clean and tidy, and the staff were polite and very helpful, its about a 5 min walk to the beach, you can do a lot worse, good value for your money
