- quiet area, the noisy streets are far away
- free wifi in the lobby area
- mini fridge in the room, free of charge
- the cleaning ladies are friendly
- we have arrived at the hotel at 08:00 am and we asked the receptionist if we could have breakfast (our stay included half board): she told us that we have to pay for it, because the check-in is at 14:00 o'clock. We have traveled in several hotels in Spain, but nobody told us to pay the breakfast, others have invited us to have breakfast without us asking them. This was a big dislike.
- found a few dirty dishes
- breakfast is not diversified - few meals to choose from
- the fruit plates were most of the time empty - 5 minutes before food service closing time they brought new fruit, so that even if you wanted to eat some, you didn't have the time. This happened daily, mornings and evenings.
The food was ok, but some of the dishes weren't labeled - you cold see the food but you didn't know exactly what it contains.
Overall, the hotel was ok, but we stayed at other 4 star hotels in Spain: same price, better conditions.
