The manager of the hotel was lovely and welcoming and for the price (£30 a night room only for 2- alpharooms) we were pleasantly surprised at how nice, although very basic, the hostal was. We were lucky to get one of the larger rooms on the front of the hotel, but like one of the other reviews on here, it was difficult to sleep at night as the hotel is right in the centre near all the bars/restaurants. We are in our ealry twenties so this didnt both us too much but if your wanting a quiet night or your a light sleeper then this is probably not the best place to stay. It also has no air con so we found ourselves having to sleep with all the windows open as it was so hot, as expected in August. However, for the price and the central location this hostal was perfect for us, it is a 2min walk to one of the smaller beaches and about 5/10 min walk to cala gran beach. All the beaches got very busy so you need to get there before 10am to secure a patch of sand or people practically lie on top of you, i think it would be much better to visit this resort out of the school holidays if you can! The resort itself is lovely, very picturesque, especially the harbour, there are some gorgeous restaurants and even though they are a bit pricey there was some cheaper options on all the menu's- but its well worth it for the atmosphere and we prefered it here to the main centre. Our only dissapointment with this resort was the food in the main square, it was all very over priced and the prices did not reflect the standards- we can't comment on all the restaurants as we only tried a few but the food was terrible. One restaurant I would strongly advise against is called Pirates (a grill restaurant) where we were looking forward to some nice meat but got served lamb chops that smelt off and the waitresses response was "oh yeah, i tried them last week and they were disgusting"!!! So we ate at the marina for the rest of our stay! This resort is great for families and couples and the few roads that go through it are very quiet. The hotel provided toilet rolls daily, and clean towels every few days and we found all the staff very pleasant. We didnt eat in the hotel but the food looked nice enough and the drinks here were reasonably priced. There are supermarkets 50m away and everything else you may need on your door step! Lovely hotel and holiday!! Enjoy! x
