Stayed for a week. Fantastic views, clean rooms and friendly staff. What more is needed! Breakfast basic but good. All I can say is I've already booked to stay here again. Can't get a better review than that!

Stayed: May 2014, travelled solo

This was our second visit here and we will return again because of the location, value for money and the charming and attentive staff, especially Mercedes the manager. It does need updating, especially the bathrooms, but importantly it is clean, comfortable, quiet and just across the road from the beach. We usually spent the evenings in town where it was livelier but we did really enjoy a Cuban night in the hotel and the food was delicious. There is also a friendly bar next to the hotel which we enjoyed visiting for a final coffee etc.I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for a relaxing break.

Just returned from 4 days here. We were worried by a couple of previous reviews but once there we were delighted. The owner Mercedes waited up for us as we checked in very late and gave us some bottled water. Our room was spotlessly clean, rather spartan but all the basics were there. The breakfast was excellent, bread, rolls, croissants, cold meat and cheese, cereals, juices, tea and coffee. It is just across from the beach and has several good restaurants and cafes close by. A decent pool on the 2nd floor but no sun beds. Excellent value for what we paid with a beautiful sea view. Only one niggle, we smashed a glass by accident and were still finding pieces right up to when we left despite mentioning it several times.

Room Tip: Always pay for a sea view, mountain views look out onto a dark sheer rock face a few feet away.

We stayed at the hotel for 12 days and every day was the same good service. It means a lot to the owners themselves are on site along with their nice staff. All greet each other and say hello and ask about how you feel. The total staff made ​​us feel at home and welcome, and the best recommendation we can give is that we will definitely stay there again in the future.

Room Tip: In the restaurant you can get everything just asking about it. We ended up eating at the hotel restaurant most evenings, and even the locals said it was a really good restaurant. There is a fine free swimmingpool on the roof. You can get the key at reception. On the beach you can rent deck chairs, but go down there early, as they quickly sold out.

This place advertises itself as a hotel but it is nothing of the sort. I'm a pretty relaxed Spanish speaker and I was here for two days...im still here now as I write this in fact so let me give you the positives....the view....it only has the first two floors of an appartment block so the views are restricted but still amazing....this I think is why they can charge so much....84 euros a night which is high...if you don't need a sea view then there are plenty of other places...other positives are mostly Cuban staff who are very friendly.....negatives. ...we were told the TV was out of order in our room..no bug deal as dont watch TV.....internet....good luck...never works ANYWHERE so expect to stay incognito. ...no mini bar....ok....no safe! So make sure you have a lock...this is really poor for a hotel in 2014....ok...the fixtures and fittings are total crap...no refit since 1973..whole place stinks of damp and aged decor....the shower is great...double shower but all from 1973..the toilet basin lid peeled off and is cracked....see photos...it's disgusting. ...bed..foam..no springs....damp feeling....no pillows only a skinny sausage thing....sheets were stained and not changed by housekeeping....ours had blood stain on them...This place is more like a youth hostel than a hotel and I will be complaining to the municipality about the conditions....for 84 euros please go elsewhere. ...oh...breakfast. ...the worst I have ever had....in spain no excuse....bland meat....the worst coffee in the world and orange squash for juice....don't bother....ok....you have been warned...
