This was a cheap holiday booked at the last minute and despite a couple of hiccups was a really good break in a hotel of much higher quality than would otherwise be expected for the price.
The room was clean, well laid out and perfectly acceptable. Ours was adjacent to the pool which wasn't too noisy (we went outside school holidays). The place itself wasn't full and I suspect there might be sunbed shortages when it is though. (Just a few annoying British en-mass families that felt the need to take 8 sunbed with towels and turn up in the afternoon hours later. (When did we Brits start doing that?!).
Restaurant was very basic. Breakfast was ok, and they have tried hard to cater for the English breakfast brigade but there was still some nice pastries and fruit too. It's the same room for dinner and unfortunately it is a canteen so if your aim for dinner on holiday is a function to stop hunger then it's fine. If however a nice relaxing meal is part of the holiday then this isn't the right place. They could make much more of the tables outside as they are much more pleasant. Food is ok, although did once have a undercooked chicken breast - think seared. The only other hiccup was the room wasn't ready until 9pm (a sorry would have been nice). However as we arrived at 7pm it wasn't the end of the world. It's only irritating as they probably charged someone else to stay late and in doing so sacrificed the new residents (us!).
It's at the far end of the main area so is a reasonable distance from all the kiss me quick junk. Also a really nice restaurant in the marina and since the hotel is so cheap we ate out several times, treating it as B&B. outside the scrappy all you can eat buffet restaurants the resort is reasonably expensive though. Best restaurant in the Marina - Casa Roja (or something like that, a red building right on the front)
All in though, a good break and well worth the cost. Would definitely stay again. Just on B&B
