Let me say we read the previous reviews. The Seagulls are noisy and dogs bark but hey! we knew it so please take note. Dogs are from the surrounding houses not the hotel and 2 Alsations at Ponderosa a house opposite the hotel entrance are really noisy. The seagulls start at about 5.45am but quieten once the sun is up and as its near a fishing port you have to accept that. Now the hotel is clean and perfectly functional ; bit miffed that we were told rooms had dishwasher and AC perhaps should be noted that some rooms have these NOT ALL, same with cooker we had a 4 plate electric hob but NO oven, decent size fridge with small freezer. Advise you to take or buy a EUROPEAN bar plug our room only had one socket in kitchen to operate a toaster, kettle and microwave so some juggling required without a bar plug. 3 x Pool areas were clean and sunbeds available from 9am ish I was down 8.40am most days and never had a problem although sunbeds were a little uncomfortable and they do need a few more as when busy people had to spread towels on grass areas to sit/lie down. Oh and watch your head on parasols they're a bit low and I'm no giant
All in all its not bad and for what we paid at short notice its accceptable. As is the bar food, we spent €38 for 4 people and that included a round of drinks on the last night as packing needed completing, snacks during day are well priced burger €4 with salad & chips, a plate of chips €2, beer €2,5 happy hour 3 for 2 between 4 and 6 on beer, Strongbow €3 per 500ml can, so good value too.
Lidl is €5 each way by taxi for cheap shopping we spent €100 for 2 weeks shopping which lasted right till the end of our 2 weeks and included loads of fluids ( H2O & pop) and fesh fruits, ice creams, etc. for 4 people
Would we go again YES its value for money and if you want a low cost clean relaxing break, bearing in mind noise of seagulls and dogs its worth a visit.
