Recently stayed at this hotel for our second time. The hotel is in an excellent location right on the beach. The staff were great very friendly and mannerly. The food for breakfast and dinner is buffet and the qualitly was good as was the selection. We used the indoor pool which was great because we had fairly bad weather during most of our stay. The pool area wasn't fully opened as we arrived at the start of the season and weather was bad. There are plenty of sunbeds and there is also a childrens pool with slides. There was a mini club but our son didn't attend so I cannot comment other than the children that were attending were having a great time! I had some treatments in the Aquaplaya Spa they were very relaxing and reasonable price. We went to some local reastraunts at the Marina there were lovely Tapas Bars there as well. Really enjoyed our second saty and hope to return again in the future!

Room Tip: The rooms on the ground floor on the poolside have a large patio area which is great.

The hotel is situated in the first line of a lovely promenade facing a marvellous beach with pristine beach and calm waters. Next to it there are other hotel and condos separated by large avenue and beautiful gardens. The building itself is square like with 3 floors. with a pool in the middle surrouded with a sparse garden and a pool bar.
Inside the reception area and the indoor bar are very simple/plain with small palm trees area inside.
the reception staff (and generality of the hotel staff) are friendly and helpfull.
The rooms are very spacious and confortable with 2 queen size beds, pool views or street/garden views. Simple style with practical furniture makes them very nice. Bathrooms with separated bathtubs and shower cabins, compose a very nice and spacious space.
About the general areas, the lack of cleanliness is a serious issue!!! in the hallways and corridors its very commun to find rolls of dust and fuzz, as well as papers (there was a big dead cricket that stayed near the elevator during 3 days...) and dirt... In the pool areas it was also commom to find plates filled with leftovers and paper cup lying in the tables, chairs.... Also very unplesant was the outdoor jacuzi!!! in a place were there was suposed to be 10/12 persons there was about 18/20, including small children with diapers... (disgusting!).
The pool area is nice with a large swimming pool, water toboggan, jacuzi. plenty of sunbeds are spread all over the space.
We stayed in a all inclusive plan that was a little bit disappointing! the restaurant is spascious, clean and the staff are very nice and helpfull, however the menu is very repetitious, ( paella, pizza and hotdogs in 3 nights...deserts supermarket style), with few variety and not very well cooked (many food that were grilled in the minute were burned ou tasteless). Drink plan was ok, with many local and imported drinks for free, however the aftermoon snack was a salami/meat cream sandwich plus a supermarket wrapped cake!
Overall its a average family hotel with a marvellous beach location and weak food plan and lack of cleanliness.

This hotel belongs to Playa Senator chain of hotels, from which I'm a regular guest all over Spain. This was my first stay at this brand new hotel. The result was according to the standards I'm used to, but surpassing my expectations on a few details: additonal spa vouchers, free stay for our pet, free daily choice of the meal for half-board (lunch or dinner) and much more.
Concerning the amenities, I got amazed with the area of both the bedroom and the bath room: minimum 32 m2 and additional balcony with superb sea view, Very good spa and indoor swiming pool.
Enough variety at the buffet restaurant, always prepared for live cooking upon our selection.
Outside, there's a very long walkway paralell to a long and carefuly treated garden along the baech and the seaside.
This hotel also has single and double bedroom apartments. I visited one and I must say there's nothing missing.
Me and my wife, we have enjoied this five nights stay for only 139 EUR/pax at the last week of October..
Highly recommended.

  • Liked — Confortable bedroom an spa convenience.
  • Disliked — Nothing to mention.
