My husband and 2 children stayed in Santa Monica for 3 nights, half board. The hotel is located in an excellent position, close to the beach, shops and bus stops for all tours. The hotel entrance is really nice and spacious. Rooms are cleaned every day, they are basic and a bit on the small side, no hairdryers or fridge...

we arrived at this hotel on the friday night and were pleased at the helpfulness of the receptionist staff. the room was very small and although we asked for 2 single beds a double bed was still there. the television was all in spanish and had a small electric current running through it to prevent you from using the controls...
