My Partner and I stayed here 17th -31st July '14 on an AI basis and were very pleasantly surprised after reading the negative reviews on here. We arrived a little early to check in to our room as check in is not till 2.00 but this was no problem as reception gave us our bands so that we could have drinks and lunch while we were waiting. We stayed in room 509 the room was spotless, we had a little balcony with two chairs on which was a bonus !! and we were lucky as we had a partial sea view.The Safe is 20 euros a week but then air-con is free and we have had to pay for both at other hotels !! The room is cleaned on a daily basis and you have the option to have clean towels and sheets by either leaving the towels on the floor or by leaving a card on the bed for clean sheets. I don't personally know anyone who has clean sheets every day at home but expects them on holiday !!. You can also have large towels for the beach from reception at no extra cost. YES !! you can hear the trains sometimes however they DID NOT interfere with our sleep, the trains stop 12 ish and the hotel does not hide the fact that it is next to a railway line !! rather this then the madness of staying near the Strip !! The food was very good the choice was not massive as this is a very small hotel however everything that was served was hot and very tasty. A member of staff cooked eggs and omelettes and the breads and croissants were cooked on the premises fresh every morning. There is a great choice on the AI drinks and a reduced cost menu for branded drinks if you are AI.
One of the things that I personally liked was the fact that there was a courtyard where you could relax and have a coffee during the day with no-one screaming and running around as the pool is on the roof !! In the evenings the courtyard was lovely and the bar serves you in glasses and not plastic.
The beach is a two minute walk under the railway line and there is a very pleasant promenade along the beachfront for after dinner walks.
The entertainment is minimal but again we actually liked that. I wouldn't recommend this hotel if you have children as the facilities for children are practically non existent.
Every single member of staff were exceptional and could not do enough for you and my partner and I would not hesitate to book this hotel again.
