The location of the Hotel is very good, short walk to beach and local shops, atm's are also nearby. Rooms are large and although very basic, they are clean. There is no air conditioning which was a major draw back especially for our young son. You can rent a fan at an additional cost, which helped a bit. The pool...

Hotel has a nice pool and garden area, generally very peaceful during our stay and never a problem getting a lounger. Only slight niggle with pool was lack of shade and that nobody seemed to know that parasols...

Last minute, long weekend break. I normally do a bit of research before booking a holiday but this wasn't planned so went for the Almar as it appeared to be well located, reasonably priced and looked pleasant enough. Wasn't disappointed at all. Clean and spacious rooms, pleasant pool area with a nice cooling breeze and helpful staff. The hotel a...
