“Nice but basic”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Lives n the setting which is second to none, food is basic and not the cheapest. However it should be if you get my meaning.

“disapointment”
Reviewed 22 June 2011

We have known of this hotel for a couple of years and it is fantastic being right on the beach..

We decided, four of us, to go for dinner and booked a table on the terrace overlooking the sea. Good job we booked as the area soon filled. We got settled and ordered drinks and perused the menu, drinks arrived and in due course starters and mains were ordered.

Although plenty of staff the service overall was indifferent as we had to ask for various things. Two ordered a meat dish and two the paella which followed in due course, the meats were declared good enough but the paella arrived with a flourish but instead of being placed upon a table for self service, as they would have wished it was quickly waiter served before he could be stopped which resulted in a eye pleasure being splossed upon plates. Even so "so be it" ..... on extraction the plate was sparse in sea food and the mussels unopen ... on calling the "maitre" he surprising said that they were closed and rushed to get a plate of uncooked to show them ... after "no no" .. etc the situation dawned upon him and he again rushed away returning quite soon with a dish of cooked and opened mussels .... the moment being lost they eat what they could and declined the remains. Puddings were then taked and the bill called for.

The bill was for some 121 and notes to 140 were put ...this disappeared and did not return. The tip was ok but it would have been nice to have been given the opportunity to leave it as usual.

The place is fab the rest you read .... the paella showed no comparison to that taken on a little local bar "on the front" , perhaps a bad time but leaves a not too good impression.
