Reasonably priced drinks at the bar and food ok, not the biggest selection for dinner but always a meat and fish dish as wells as the usual stuff - pasta, pizza, salad etc. Ok selection for breakfast. Food could have been a...

We're at the Balmoral as I write this and it suits us perfectly. The hotel is in a great location and we've been allocated a large, clean and comfortable room with a pool view. The staff are all friendly, helpful and efficient. Personally I've felt spoilt for choice in the restaurant both at breakfast and dinner with a good range...

The hotel is very neat and tidy, equipped with decent and comfortable furniture.Rooms are cleaned everyday and linen is being changed twice a week. On TV you can find mainly Spanish channels but ... it doesn't really matter. You are just 50 meters...

We would highly recommend this hotel especially as we booked it at such a good price. Our room on the 6th floor overlooked the pool and had central heating.
