This hotel is lovely, well located and accessible!
Staff are very professional. In all areas - cleaning, waiting and reception.Stayed in room 717. Amazing views of marina boats and to the left a view of the sea. Rooms are spacious and had air con. The kitchen was bright and had all the amenities could need eg hob, fridge, etc.
We had a bottle of champagne and chocolates in the room on arrival and roses on the bed (at the request of one of my travelling companions!)
Hotel is not up on a cliff so its very handy to get around however if your staying on the 7th floor like i was you could use the lift or stairs. many other hotels in the area appear to be on higher ground and you would need to be physically able to get up to them via steps/walking etc.
It is situated in a good location away from the night life however the centre isnt too far to walk wither if you do go out at night only 5-10 minutes walk.
it is direclty beside a marina so you can hear a boat yard etc which we found was fine with us.
The beach is a 2min walk from the hotel...we could see it from our balcony. beaches tended to be small but beautiful around this area.
Hotel is about 5-10 minute walk from the shopping centre - some shops and cafes/restaurants here. nightlife here also.
Close to boats at this hotel. The ferry is only across the way. We did a day trip to Mogen a village up the way.
Aqualand and a go karting place are about a 15 minute drive (in the next town) taxi there costs approx €24 (there was 6 of us so worked out cheap). There is buses available also.
My sisters went doing water sports and there is a vairtiy of other activities people can do. Leaflets at the hotel entrance.
Marina suites kept very clean. cleaning trolleys and staff visible a lot. very good service. no cockroaches or anything in the hotel.
seen only 2 cockroaches along the marina boating area not in the hotel, during the whole of my visit.
Great value €19 all inclusive evening meal (we went on the Italian themed night - i had cod, veal, lasagne, salmon salad, chicken breast , many desserts all in one sitting etc!) they also do a buffet breakfast which was €12 as we hadnt booked an inclusive package - room only. but again value for money we didnt need to eat lunch the day we ate it all sorts on offer fresh orange juice pressed before your eyes, varieties of cooked food and breads etc.
Food wise there's something for everyone from the more expensive restaurants along the marina to cheaper places in the town center. You get what you pay for! we opted for a tbone steak meal on the beach one evening €16 for the main and it was delicious!
Arizona restaurant along the marina does fabulous cocktails and a mighty mixed kebab -great presentation!
Peurto Rico (or at least the area where we were mingling in) seems to be a quieter place to go this appealed to us as we wanted relaxation.
the hotel/area in my opinion suits couples and families more than it would suit hens/staggs that kind of thing.
The infinity pool which looks out onto the ocean and the jacuzzi were may favoutrite thing about this place...beautiful view!
The Marina suites also do apartments up the road and villas up higher on a cliff so when booking there is a vairty of accomations to choose from. We stayed in the Marina Suites apt 717.
Now for the cons...well id have to knit-pick to be honest couldnt find fault with anything.
Perhaps mention that dinners are buffet style as places to eat are cheaper in town, and people may not realise the great value they could get for their money unless they try it (like we did!)
Without a doubt I would definitively recommend this place to others and I hope to return back sometime!!
