On arrival at the hotel we were pleasantly surprised. A little saddened to see there was no footpath from the hotel to the town however!
The receptionist was friendly and we checked in quickly. The hotel at one stage would have been very up to date but i think its due a refurb. Although all clean its a little tired looking now.
We were really lucky as we went just before school holidays so the pool area was quiet. The bar however wasnt always open and the front bar was closed for our entire stay, This said the ladies in the pool bar were very friendly and the maintenance team were very helpful when we broke our shower head!!
The hotel offered a bus service into the centre of Roses which we used daily. Without a car otherwise we were quite isolated. Alejandro really looked after us and although there was a small language barrier we were sad to go without saying good bye.
We only stayed B&B the breakfast was ok - not amazing but typical for a Spanish breakfast buffet.
This hotel is ideal for Aqua Brava also!
