Good location easy to get in to town, 5 min walk. Clean hotel rooms basic but clean. If half board food is self serve and enough choice even for a fussy eater, staff friendly and helpful. Bar staff good fun, and polite. Would recommend this hotel.

The rooms are ok, but the hotel seems to be old and need refurbishing. The personell was service minded and smiling. The food in the restaurant was ok, but when you are in Spain - dont choose all inclusive or half pension - you loose half of the pleasure of travelling in a country with such a fantastic cuisine.

Let's face it you go all inclusive for the bar... The pool isn't heated but once you're in it's good. You can ask for a picnic, this is a...
