On arrival we had a corner family suite with a second bedroom, lovely view across to Noja. The beach looks very inviting but actually it's a little deceptive as the beach is across a small waterway and so isn't directly accessible. I understand in the season a boat may run to the beach. There is another beach in the village.
The hotel is family owned so does not have a corporate feel at all. It caters mainly to Spanish guests, I suspect out of the Summer months mainly to coach trips of Seniors. They had a separate eating area.
We were on a B&B package via Brittany Ferries. The breakfast was extensive and service was prompt, unsurprising as we only saw 2 other couples eating in the main room.
There isn't a great eating option in the village for families and of course the locals don't really eat before 8pm which with a 3 year old isn't that easy tom cope with. There was a bar in the village; Bar del Mar which was fine, menu del dia €9.50 for 3 courses including an absolutely decent bottle of wine.
The grounds are pleasant to wander for a few minutes, the pool was clean. Overall we were happy with the Hotel, yes the carpet is worn in places and yes the drop between the lifts would be a hazard for the overly exploratory toddler but none of this should detract from a very pleasant place that it is.
