“Gorgeous hotel”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We stayed there for 10 nights from the 1st August. 2 adults and 2 children aged 10 and 13. We would rate this hotel closer to a 5 star. Initially we were placed in the apartments in the block next to the hotel and it appeared most British people were placed here. It was very spacious and although we had a few minor faults e.g shower leaking they were fixed within 10 minutes. They had a slight problem fixing outer phone and the manager Maria was superb. She moved us into the main hotel and upgraded us to eat in the level restaurant. The food in the main all inclusive restaurant is superb but in the level it was extra special. You had the choice of food cooked to order and caviar and champagne for breakfast!!! Some British families were upgraded to eat in the level restaurant but others were not. We are not sure why but the hotel said it depended on the travel agent.
Although not initially many British families my son made friends with some german boys and a boy from Austria who spoke superb English. We did meet about 5 other British families as the holiday went on but we're happy also being with all nationalities. Everyone there was very polite and respectful.
The staff couldn't do enough for you and the beach is the best ever. There are 2 main pools. The large salt water pool is very salty but is fab to float in. Sunbathing also round here can get hot. Around the normal rectangular pool you get an all day breeze which we loved.
One tiny thing they could improve on is activities for older children. More games around pool etc. We only saw a inflatable mat that was brought out fir half and hour every day for the children to run on the water. It was ok for my son as he played tennis and nd football but sometimes my daughter wanted a little extra. The evening entertainment for families could also be improved. Great up until 9 pm for small children but after that at times flat although the flamenco show was good.
This hotel caters for adults and couples with an upstairs bar area where they play jazz etc with a beautiful setting.
Overall we loved our stay with the beautiful setting and immaculate hotel.
Maria the manager definitely improved our stay with her approach and the fact that we were able to experience the level. I personally preferred staying in the main hotel although the apartments are bigger as I preferred the view and decor.
I would definitely return

Good hotel for people interested in wind surfing or kite boarding - just a few meters away from the hotel. Good food, clean, nice interior, not crowdy, so we could relax. What we also liked was the temperature at about 22

We stayed only for a few days but everything was great. The atmosphere, the people who took care of us and the people that were staying at the hotel were all nice. The breakfast was very good, definitely worth paying for (and the dinner also). Will definitely need to go again.

I should not really be writing this as I don't want to give away the secrets on this amazing hotel. The views are stunning the cleanliness and service outstanding ,The pools gorgeous all 4 of them . We have been coming here for over 20 years and love the venue on Sotevento beach . As the Hotel is in a natural park it is complete escapism from day to day life. The food is exceptional the rooms beautifully tidy and clean and with recent upgrades to the hotel it is definitely 5 star . only one complaint can we have Heinz Tomato ketchup at tea time! but seriously with upgrading to a level room as you get even more special treatment .We will be back again this year and thanks for making our holiday so memorable.

Food each day was buffet style and the variety was excellent.Three pools one sea water others
None sea water,the sea water pool was quite big but at one end was very shallow.There were two
Level areas with jacuzzi fruit drink and fruit,and of course sun beds .All the staff were always on the help if needed.We were on the top floor with a sea view ,our room also had a wall television.Would I go again yes but not the last two weeks in July as the word championships wind

We visited this great hotel again in June/July and once again loved every minute of the 14 days which flew by. The staff were very friendly and made us feel very welcome many of them speak good English and were happy to assist with my novice Spanish, often both parties ended up laughing. The adult only cocktail bar had some excellent live musicians which contributed greatly to general atmosphere of relaxation away from the more lively Fun Pub where the shows are staged. There was no problem with sun beds many were still available by the pool at 10am, those around the gardens are also available with many being free even at mid day. We had a room on the 8th floor overlooking the fabulous Sotavento beach which we really love, especially when looking from the balcony on the evening. Meals are easily varied and there is always food cooked fresh while you wait, the buffet style service means you can eat at whatever pace you choose.
We love the relaxed atmosphere of this lovely hotel and we always go all inclusive as it offers such great value. Our daily walk up the quiet but fabulous beach was always followed by a relaxing coffee and a Brandy in the outdoor bar overlooking the main pool.
We will be going back again next year as we feel so comfortable at this lovely hotel and location.
The beach can be a bit windy but this can be great if you fancy watching or taking part in the kite boarding or wind surfing, which takes place at the bottom of the hotel steps.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking Sotavento beach are blessed with wonderful views of the stunning beach.
