I write this as I stay at Hotel525, leaving tomorrow.
5 day short break and picked 525 based on the reviews......and they are spot on, it's excellent.
Location is wonderful, 20 seconds and your surrounded by restraunts and bars, 5 mins walk and your on a beautiful flat shallow sandy beach, with 3 miles in each direction.
Cost of the hotel was excellent for the standard. Big modern roomy hotel, very tasteful rooms, we booked a corner suite which was brilliant, balcony one side looking over the mountains, balcony the other side looks out to sea, and the back side of the hotel is VERY quiet, but you can sit out and people watch without the bars at the front disturbing you at all (WE DIDN'T STAY AT THE FRONT BUT I CAN AGREE WITH OTHERS, IT MUST BE QUITE NOISEY OVER LOOKING THE MAIN SQUARE).
Breakfast was fine, others comment it's not an English breakfast.......hello, We are not in England :) Fried and scrambled eggs, bacon, beans, sausages, toast, fresh breads, lots of fruit, cold meats, cheeses and juices, and lovely coffee, it's great but I would agree there are lots of options directly outside the hotel.
We didn't eat in the hotel as the only negative was yesterday when I stood at the hotel bar for 20 minutes to book a table for dinner (I mean stood waiting at the bar for 20 minutes) despite TWO members of staff saying 'just wait a moment' and walked off! Sorry 525 but with so much selection outside this wasn't good enough. The room service however was excellent.
Overall, top notch, great hotel, super location and very very reasonable prices, that's the whole region, much cheaper than La Manga, Costa Del Sol or the Algarve.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND 525, yes.
