Situated close to the sea in the quiet (in March) village of Cristal De Mar. We had a room looking out towards Le Manga strip, which was modern and well equipped. Cafe (OK but nothing special) and a restaurant (well worth a visit) are literally just round the corner. There is also a local Spar shop only 50m away. Staff...

Decent place on the sea so we had a nice walk. Fairly spartan room but had cooking facilities which we did not use. Place requires special notification if you are checking in after 1730. Definitely off the beaten path

The apartments have an enviable position right next to the beach. They are a good standard for a 3 star property, rooms are clean and well equipped for a short stay and the staff were very friendly. There is a restaurant adjacent to the property which gives a discount to guests.

Stayed from 10th - 17th september. Temp was still around 30°C. The sea is very shallow and warm, so quite safe for children. You have to walk around 50m for neck deep water. One cafe in front of the beach in the same building. Menu is very good for a cafe and reasonably priced. Opening times from around 8am to...

We visited on 24 July. Had a drink, the landlord and his staff were getting ready for a live band - started playing at 23.00 hours, so we didn't see them play. Pleasant staff who made an effort even though they were busy setting up. I suspect it would be busy when the live act was on, but we were...

Despite of all building being shabby and in need of good clean up and renovation, the room didn't leave good impression as well. Windows are really dirty, ceiling is covered in mould spots. I had to clean sand from the drawers by myself, cause staff mostly speak only Spanish (except the receptionist, who ain't always there). No linen for the...

Nice place but busy and small.Loungers are not comfortable and useless if you have any arthritis as you cannot get out of them!! Noisy children in the area can get to be a nuisance at times. Staff are good and the food is fine.Worth a visit.

The hotel is perfect placed direct on the beach, with a lounge, bar/cafe and restaurant, the studios is small and basic but is clean and fresh. We really liked it until the last day when we were checking out, the night before we were not sleeping there and guess if we were surprised when we entered our room very early...

“Some studios have a shared rooftop balcony area. The shared area is very large, sunny, well equipped and stylish, but if you MUST have a private balcony then check when you book.”

“If you have a 'Loft' ask for room 202, the terrace area is probably four or five times the size of room 204, unless of course you are offered a substantial discount on 204 (we heard that this was available).”
